Siddal out to make it two-from-two

Siddal head to Leigh Miners tomorrow gunning for back to back Premier Division wins and the end of a lengthy losing sequence at a venue where the Chevinedge club traditionally struggle.

Gareth Greenwood’s side banished memories of a crushing Challenge Cup reverse at Hull Dockers with a comprehensive 26-18 success over Lock Lane, who finished joint top of the division last season.

“We were 26-0 up after 50 minutes; we were really, really good for that period,” said Greenwood.

“We had another try disallowed, then they got an interception and the last 20 minutes or so got a bit scrappy, but overall it was a massive win.

“We spoke about getting off to a good start, now we’ve just got to go and back it up at Miners.

“I’ve asked a few people and no one can remember when we last got a win there, so it’s a good challenge for us.”

Greenwood looks likely to select from a position of strength, with Scott Caley - who is both injured and suspended - the only absentee.

“We should have everyone else available,” said Greenwood.

“Everyone’s been training well and that was reflected in last week’s result.

“The players know themselves, when we’ve got a settled side, good training numbers and put in some good preparation, we get good results.

“When we don’t, we get something else.

“It’s not rocket science.”
