While Barrow Raiders go into tomorrow’s home match against Featherstone Rovers looking to end an 11-game winless run, their visitors will arrive at Craven Park safely in mid-table.

It’s been a campaign of peaks and troughs so far for the Post Office Road outfit, who have won five games and lost six in the Betfred Championship.

However, their Easter programme is something they’ll look back on with plenty of pride, after a thumping 42-12 win over York City Knights on Good Friday was followed up by a battling performance against Toronto on Monday.

The Wolfpack, fresh from seeing off a spirited Raiders performance four days previously, were pushed all the way by a confident Rovers, who came out of a 23-14 with plenty of credit.

Tries from Makahesi Makatoa and Conor Carey kept the home side in the picture against the promotion favourites and trailed by just five points going into the final minute, where Matty Russell completed his hat-trick to finally settle the contest.

Despite coming into the match against the Raiders in better shape, Featherstone head coach Ryan Carr will not be underestimating Paul Crarey’s side on the day.

He told the Pontefract and Castleford Express: “They are going to be a tough away trip for us.

“I say it every week and I sound like a broken record, but we are at our best when we worry about ourselves and get our own backyard in order.

“But we are well aware that they have got a lot of good players in Barrow and playing at home they go to a new level.

“So, we know it is not going to be an easy trip and we need to make sure we are at our best, and that is nothing short of where we need to be this week.”

Rovers won all three of last year’s meetings against Barrow, including a 38-26 triumph in the equivalent fixture at Craven Park last April, which ended the Raiders’ 23-month unbeaten home record.
