Consistency the key - Harrison

Fax coach Karl Harrison is urging his players to maintain their winning form in the Championship as they prepare to travel to face Batley on Sunday (3.0).

Fax are unbeaten in four games - a sequence which has rekindled hopes of meeting their target of finishing in the top two come the end of the season.

The winning run has been the result of some much-needed consistency which has come about through the players putting in the hard graft.

“All we have spoken about for the last few weeks is maintaining that consistency,” said Harrison.

“Things are going okay. We have been playing well and getting the results.

“It has been through the hard work of the players and that is being rewarded at the moment.

“However, you are only one game away from a defeat so we have to make sure we remain focused and committed.”

Harrison is also keen to erase the memory of a heartbreaking 10-8 defeat by the Bulldogs at the Shay back in March when Vinny Finigan crossed in the dying minutes to secure the points.

“We lost in the last minute which was difficult to take at the time,” said Harrison.

“We are going there with the confidence a good run brings but we know it will be a tough game.

“They are well-coached and have some really good players. We need to be well-organised and go there with a winning mentality.

“Although we are looking pretty healthy at the moment there will be no big statements - there is still plenty of work to do and we will keep our heads down and get on with it.”

Harrison admitted that it would be difficult to change a winning team but hinted that there may be one or two changes for Sunday.

“It can be a nightmare when you have too many people to choose from,” added Harrison.

“We had players who picked up injuries a few weeks ago and those that have stepped in have done a great job.

“I haven’t formulated a team yet so there could be a few changes.”
