Not being superstitious but after last weeks ridiculous predictions coming true ...ish...how are we all feeling for the Leigh fixture?
Leigh play Halifax tonight so maybe they'll be tired and we must be feeling confident after last week. ..plus we are well overdue a victory over Leigh.
I'll go for a 19 18 lions win. Last minute drop goal from watto

Maybe Riggy. Our best players though were Swintons own...Penny Smith and the Hawkyards
I also think Harvey helps us get the ball out wide a lot more than most

Lions 35 - 28 Leigh

Note to Leigh: please throw some speculative passes out to Kev Penny's wing, as Fev found out, it works a treat!

Since I was the only one predicting last weeks win...I will go for a narrow 20 - 18 Lions win.

Leigh beat Fax 11-4 tonight but both teams were well below par.  Leigh 4-nil up on 39 mins then got a late penalty goal and a drop goal before Fax scored in the corner to make it 7-4 but fax messed up at the kick off in the last minute and Leigh scored in the corner from the error.

 

Higson had a stormer for Leigh playing on the right wing and didn't put a foot wrong.  There was a big punch up in the first half and Leigh had Bate sent off and Fax lost Ben Heaton but everyone joined in so it went on report.

If my memory serves me right, I think they already did that at the 'home' game  :tongue:

 

In all seriousness though I really do believe this game is winnable. However, the result will depend entirely on which Swinton team shows up, the one that plays well 'on the training ground', or the mystery, absolutely clueless, team that has shown up on match day almost every game since Chambers arrival!

 

If the effort from the Fev game can be reproduced then il go for a narrow win, if not il go for a narrow loss similar to the last time we played them. Leigh havent done much to impress me all season (by their standards).

Does anybody know if tickets for Sunday are available from Cliff's or the Club?
Possibly not as it's an away match?

No Paul, it's Leigh's home match. I couldn't get mine from club HQ so I had a little ride up the A580 to get them from the LSV

£18 adults, £10 cons.
