Stuck in eight place in the league, first team coach Craig Farrimand says his side can't afford to drop any more points if they want to make the play-off places in Division Two. Faz publicly criticised the commitment of some of his players after they crashed to four defeats in a row over the past month but they won away at Salford City Roosters 38-18 in their most recent league match. That was followed up on Saturday with a 32-16 loss away at Premier Division side Wigan St Pats in the Conference Trophy. It was a close game but Pats ran away with it after Gavin Dodd was sent off for a high tackle in the 65th minutes.
Faz said; "We played some good stuff at St Pats and I was disappointed the way it finished after Doddy went off. I thought we could have snatched it." The coach says they still have time to make a success of the season; "We've had an upturn in attendance at training and commitment on game day. The target now is the make the top six and I'm looking to get maximum points from the games we have left. Lots of the home games we have left are against teams below us but we have five games in three weeks coming up so the squad is going to get tested."
