Siddal in search of back-to-back success

Siddal coach Gareth Greenwood has urged his side to break their on-off run of form with a home win over Myton in the Premier Division of the National Conference tomorrow.

The Chevinedge side won 30-22 at Hull Dockers last weekend, answering Greenwood’s call to arms after the previous weekend’s loss to Thatto Heath.

And now, after a series of win one, lose one results, Greenwood is looking for back to back successes.

“We can’t keep doing what we’ve been doing; turning up one week, then thinking we’ve made it and not turning up the next,” said Greenwood, whose side came back from an early 10-0 deficit to triumph on Humberside.

“If we want to get anywhere this season, that’s got to stop now.

“We played pretty well last weekend and in the second half especially we were pretty dominant.

“It was 30-16 for a long period before they got one back to make it look respectable, but I never felt we were in danger of losing.

“The danger now is that we fall back into the same pattern.

“We need to come out and put another good performance together and try and build some momentum.”

Myton have toiled so far this season, but have had an usurge in form in recent weeks, with Greenwood suggesting the return of players from their winter teams makes them a more dangerous proposition than their league position would suggest.

“It’s a tricky one for us,” said Greenwood, whose side were dumped out of last season’s play offs by tomorrow’s visitors.

Siddal will be without stand off Shaun Garrod, who is unavailable, with Greenwood likely to slot in at half back alongside Chris Brooke.

There will also be a reshuffle in the backs, with Emerson Newburn coming in to replace Gareth Blackburn.
