Barrow Island will look to make it four wins in succession when they take on Clock Face Miners in Division Two of the National Conference League at Rating Lane tomorrow.

Island’s home form could lead them to that victory as they look to build upon a fine 22-20 win at Hull Dockers last Saturday.

Joint coach Steve Clark was over the moon with the win on Humberside and believes his side can make it four in a row.

“When you look back to last Saturday, we went to Hull with only 15 players and minus some experienced lads,” said Clark.

“It was a good display and though Clock Face are always a difficult side to beat, we are quietly confident.

“Some come in this week and some go out, especially in the forwards, but this is a department we have strength in depth.”

After a slow start, the St Helens side, whose three opening fixtures were all away, have started to come good and recently beat leaders Ince Rose Bridge.

Back in contention are Jack Sutherland, Dan White and Chris Burns, while Connor Pearce is expected to overcome a hamstring problem.

Missing out, though, are forceful packmen Josh Banham, Joe Spencely and Joe Mallinson.

“Three good forwards out, but we still have key men up front in Carl and Josh McBain along with Matt Parkinson,” added Clark.

Askam are on the road to Wigan St Judes and hope to add experienced forward Tom Hopkins to last week’s squad that lost 52-24 to Rose Bridge.

Jamie Wallis and Chris Broadley are in the squad but missing out is Danny Rhodes, while creative half back Joe Satterthwaite is nearly back to fitness.

Acting Coach Tammy Tyson said ahead of the trip down the M6: “We are down to the bare bones, but we will fight on. The effort is there and we did well to come back to 30-24 at Rose Bridge before they ran in late points.

Jamie Butler and Brad Kavanagh both played the full 80 last week and we are rebuilding around the two of them along with Kris Tyson and Russ Bolton.”

On the back of a 24-24 draw at Hensingham last week, Millom look to go one better and pick up both points in their home game with Eastmoor in Division Three. Jonathan Hodgson, Niall Harris and Joe Wright return, while coach Tom Sibley and Midge Dixon are unavailable.

Sibley said “We showed a lot of character at Hensingham, coming back from 24-6 down to earn a point and we will take that good form into tomorrow’s game.

“It’s one that we have to win to pull us away from the wrong end of the table.”
