Not much about Eagles !!!!!

Oliver Pursglove is extremely doubtful for Keighley after suffering a knee ligament injury against Batley, but Brendan Rawlins and dual-registered signing Nathan Massey will be in Barry Eaton’s squad to face Sheffield.

Tests have also revealed that Scott Law does not have a hernia and he will be given a late fitness test before any decision is made on his involvement.

Keighley play Sheffield, Dewsbury and Halifax over the Easter period, and Eaton said: “Three games in six days is a big ask for any club, especially for a part time squad where the players are going to be going to work in between those fixtures.”

However, Keighley’s performance against Batley last week has given Eaton genuine belief in his squad’s ability to perform in the Co-operative Championship.

He said: “We’ve made some fantastic strides since the first league game at Widnes. We’re now back to where we feel we should be.

“If we’d been a little bit more clinical against Batley, or if the weather had been a bit different, then things may have gone a different way. We feel as though we broke Batley’s line more times than they broke ours in open play.

“We posed a lot of questions offensively and our defence stood up because all their points came from kicks.”

Jason Mossop could return for the Eagles after missing his side’s 22-10 victory over Dewsbury a fortnight ago.

A disappointing result of a draw, but with inferior refereeing and junior touch judges who needed specialist education on basic maths skills on straight lines and angles, and a disgraceful mud bath of a pitch where, in the words of one of the forwards, game plans went out of the window in those conditions, can only say the good thing was that it didn't rain during the game.

Alex Szostak scored in front of his parents and g'dad, Jonny W got back on the score sheet with a try and Menzie showed his soccer skills to set up a try.

Certain Cougar players kicking out when tackled and connecting with heads, with Alex R getting a head injury in a "tackle" with a flailing foot, and a couple of others going down suspiciously... not a pretty game.

Stats were not done by me, as I went to watch for once, but with a PA so poor you couldn't hear announcements on the PA properly!! No idea who subbed for who

JW's try sounded like "Woodcooke"...

Happy days a short 10 min trip to Craven Park today
