Do we think game will beat the benchmark Monday night attendance of 3602 set by York last week?

I think the weather needs to improve drastically to max out the walk-ups. It should beat that figure though either way.

I think it will be close although I haven’t seen any figures on ticket sales. One thing to take into account Fev took over 1000 fans to York unfortunately looking at what’s been said on social media I don’t think there will be anywhere near that number been able to make the trip across the M62 on Monday evening.

Yeah there's a big difference between Sunday afternoon and a Monday evening for most travelling fans from over the hill.

One thing I will say is the club have put a lot of marketing into the game so fingers crossed for a big turn out even though it’s a Monday night in February.

Yeah they have and look to have put a good team and coach together ,let's hope the Featherstone public and surrounding areas rally round the club like they do for finals.

2 supporters coaches almost full , I'd expect a similar number by car , so a couple of hundred at most

Leigh have sold just under 500, expect 700

Plus add in free coaches free kids snd £10 tickets and it’s cheap night out for a family.

We went in car but was only a fiver for me, great jesture by York with the prices and from Rovers for the coach's.

Bigger game for Fev than Leigh I’d say at the moment. Finishing top is crucial so Fev won’t want to lose their home game. Also putting on a good performance in front of a large and expectant crowd is important for momentum. 

This Leigh squad doesn’t seem to have got the respect it deserves. It’s full of very good players and crucially they are full time. I think Leigh might win this one by 10

Is the stand behind the sticks at Fev for away fan’s. How much would cost for Leigh fan to sit in the stand ?.

Yeah it is for away fans especially when a big/ish away following come. You pay to get in ground and seating isn't  extra.

Almost everyone I know thinks fev will win. I'm glad I'm not the only one who is urging more than caution.

Leigh have a very well assembled full time squad that has been largely underplayed. I'm not confident. Others are. C'est la vie.

Me neither Robin, but for exactly the opposite reasoning to yours

I hope Featherstone have enough, and would had been more hopeful had it been in 4 weeks time.

With 2 of our best forwards out, Joey having not played a game yet and Chizzy being in limbo until now due to the ban that was later rescinded, a few weeks would have been better... for both teams.

For the neutrals, don't expect a classic... it's too early in the season and both teams will be better on summer pitches.

Feel the same way baldy, I honestly don't fancy Leigh's chances for near enough the same reasons in that Leigh have got 17 in tonight's squad that are newbies to the club this season but as you say a few weeks in can paint a completely different picture, I am quite pleased however that the game is at Fev as a loss at your place would not have the same effect as a loss at home at the LSV, I should think that Fev fans would probably feel the same if Leigh managed to win.

I think the onus and expectation on Fev to get a win is greater than Leigh, purely as they are the home team. If the fixture was at LSV, the same would be said of Leigh.

Either way, tonight's game won't define the season... it just put's more focus on it from the  media.
