will be shocked if not the tv game TBH

Same here, had some cracking games in the past, though Radio Leeds seemed to think the 'South Yorkshire derby' would be more likely?!

Donnie makes sense for the derby to be on thursday plus Batley will travel far better being favourites on the Sunday

Second worst draw possible, IMO. Just wanted to come out of the hat at home really.

Anyway, still a winnable tie. Fingers crossed for a repeat of 2010!

of the 6 possibles draws i think only shef away would have been worse! one thing i remember about 2010 was they let us sit behind the goal at "away" end of ground. doubt this will happen again, but i really think we need a presence at this place to help the team. is there anyway we could get all the batley fans sitting/standing together for this massive game????? if we win this im sure we will win the cup!!. when we lost 20-0 the other week it qas noticeable the batley lot were spread all over the place.

any thoughts anyone??, i may be talking rubbish!?

I would expect Leigh to offer you tickets for the south section of the West stand to give you the option of keeping together, its up to you where you buy for though.

 

You will definitely start favourites, above us in League and we are decimated with injuries and have no fit halves

You were decimated by injuries the other week when you nilled us. You always seem to have loads of injuries in the lead up then your players appear like Lazarus. I think this is the tie neither team wanted.

We carried knocks into that game since when we have lost both halves and DC's are not an option for NRC unless previously played

The fact you are carrying less injuries and are above us makes you favourites imo pity it's a Thursday

No disrespect intended, but these ###### for tat remarks about each other's support are getting really tedious. People in glass houses and all that.

I take it that you travelled down to Sheffield on Friday evening after all, then Johnny.

"Pot, kettle, black," perhaps? (to quote a nameless sage patrolling these forums, keeping us all on the straight and narrow.)

I would estimate 50% of Batleys home game attendance regularly attend most of the local away games.

Same faces good supporters.Sheffield,Dewsbury,Hunslet,Keighley we always put 300 on the gate!!!!!!!
