Purtill: More to come from Centurions

Leigh Centurions Caretaker Coach Kieron Purtill insists that there is still more to come from his side despite the Centurions putting together a good unbeaten run.

Leigh have won six straight Championship games and will draw level in fourth position with their opponents, London Broncos, on Sunday if they win in London.

“I don’t think we’re peaking yet,” said Purtill.

“There’s still areas in the game where we’ve not been brilliant. We’ve had a bit of a focus on the ten minutes after half-time where we’ve not been good in the last few weeks. We’re always striving for perfection in every way.”

Leigh have got the better of the Broncos twice in recent weeks, but Purtill is keen for his side to put that to the back of their minds.

“We’ve had some good results against London in the last few weeks but I’m not reading too much into that. They’re a good team and they’re playing at home. We’ll approach it with the right mindset and we’ll hopefully get the result.

“Their pitch suits their style of play: They have some good speed. We’ve got to be good in every area: We’ve got to control the ball and be good defensively.”

Purtill’s side are now one of the form teams in the Championship after a poor start. But the caretaker coach was quick to point out that nothing has been achieved yet.

“We’ve done well but all we’ve done in the last few weeks is give ourselves a chance of getting in the top four. We’ve not achieved anything or done anything yet. We’ve still got to keep winning games.”

“We’re sat just outside the top four. We’ve still got a lot of hard work in front of us. We’re just taking each week as it comes.”
