After a weekend off for our lads I hope we can really build on what we seen last time out. Hopefully the little break will have helped a few out who were struggling with knocks. Can we expect olly back? Bolton? 

Going to be a real tough afternoon. Haven have been so consistent this year and are closing in on the title. A defeat against us could open the window for newcastle however. 

Hope as many town fans go as possible.

Predictions??

Correct they have been very consistent all season and know how to grind out wins.However this is a derby game and form goes out the window, we just need to concentrate on our own game and play to our strengths rather than playing to subdue them.They will play up the middle and be strong ,but lack flair and attack near the line .We shouldn't just treat this as another game because it is a derby ,but we also shouldn't focus on how it could affect their league position,and be more concerned about how it can affect our own and help us secure play off rugby .

Another tight game with the team who makes less mistakes and keeps their discipline coming out on top, Haven by 4

Just got a feeling of town turning up and taking a close win. We need to show a hell of a lot more pride than we did at derwent park where haven completely out done us in that aspect. Haven will win the league now regardless and fully deserve to

Think a lot will depend on if forber is fit, our attack flows much better when he's involved - no obvious replacement as we seen in the matches where he missed. Need a complete 80 minute performance and to complete sets to stand any chance

I think Newcastle still have a good shout of finishing top.

Who's gonna beat Haven? They've got the bottom 3 plus Town left to play, surely they aren't going to slip up now??

I just hope we can put up a performance worthy of a derby as last time out was probably the most embarrassing I can remember. I hope out players haven't forgot about that day and are busting a gut to put it right.

If the performance that we produced against Keighley wasn't a one-off and we can carry that rediscovered commitment and pride in the shirt through to the weekend then I fancy a Town win.  As someone has said though , Buffers participation is crucial and I hope he is available. Didn't look good though when he had to come off with the shoulder injury as Carl is one of the most resilient of players, shrugging off head shots and getting through a ton of tackling game on game. If he is out then maybe time for a telling cameo performance from Blain Marwood --- a fiery baptism l know but l believe he could surprise us.

QLT's legs were decidedly wobbly last time he crossed swords with Ell .........!

Signed a lad from Cas they have had on loan. Believe me Newcastle have to go up this year @:%^ or bust. 

What about the  academy set up they've got going now though? Surely that's long term planning

Understand that they will be desperate to get promoted but if they don't then surely they'll go again next season?

Yes they will,compared to what Kutdi has invested in the Falcons his expenditure in the Thunder is small change.
