We have to beat Donny and at least one other victory, maybe Sheff at home. Worky,Haven and Donny have easier run ins I'm afraid. I've got Worky and Haven on at least 42 points at the end of season and us and Donny on 39, but Donny look like having a better points diff.

No game will be easy when teams are fighting for survival and also a chance to get into the playoffs!

It all depends how much the top teams have to play for in their last couple of games (and maybe whether Leigh have paid their players that week. :angel: )
