Batley lose Day

Batley Bulldogs will be without Brad Day for the next five to six weeks after sustaining a thumb injury.

The forward, who scored in the club’s recent Heavy Woollen Derby victory, has had his thumb pinned after sustaining a knock.

In better news, centre Shaun Squires should be fit for this weekend’s clash with Swinton after suffering a dead leg against Featherstone in the weekend’s Challenge Cup triumph over Featherstone.

Batley are ball number one in Thursday’s Challenge Cup sixth round draw.
