BARROW Raiders Ladies skipper Jodie Litherland says tomorrow’s away day against Salford Red Devils Women is chance to right wrongs and an opportunity to shine.

The Women’s Challenge Cup clash will be Raiders last in the competition this season.

Their previous two games in the cup have ended in defeat – their opener was at 22-16 loss away to Cardiff Demons and a 20-18 loss at home to Wigan.

Those results mean Amanda Wilkinson’s side won’t progress to the latter stages, and while an historic first season in the Women’s Super League is the main focus, Litherland says tomorrow’s game can help set them up nicely.

She told the club’s official Facebook page: “It’s not about the result tomorrow. It doesn’t matter either way.

“We know where we are at with that, and it’s just about making sure we put the wrongs right, work on things that we have been working on, on the training pitch and that will stand us in good stead going into Wigan away (Friday, April 19) for that first Women’s Super League game.

“What I’m most looking forward about tomorrow is seeing some of the squad players that maybe haven’t had an opportunity yet, especially some of the younger ones.

“It’s a time for them to shine and hopefully a couple of them come and put a statement out there to fight for one of those shirts come the Wigan and give us the best chance of getting a result.”

Speaking about the defeat to Wigan in the previous round, Litherland felt there were positives to take from the narrow defeat.

“It was nice to be at home because we have not played here for a while,” she said.

“I think performance wise we couldn’t ask for anything more and we were unlucky to lose.

“I think some of the tries we scored were really top quality, and there was a massive improvement from our defence in the Cardiff game.

“I think Cardiff was really poor from our own standards. I think probably now that the Cardiff and Wigan games have become a bit of an extended pre-season because we are out of the Challenge Cup.

“That gives us tomorrow to really put what we have been working on into a final practice before we go back to play Wigan at the DW (in the Super League) which everyone is looking forward to.”
