Match Preview


Higgins set for Eagles return

Liam Higgins could return for Sheffield Eagles as coach Mark Aston attempts to plot a route to the Northern Rail Cup final.

Aston said: "We've never achieved as I would have hoped in the Northern Rail Cup, but maybe this will be our year.

"Players want to get to the big games and we want to be in the final."

Scott Kaighan and Jack Spencer are both ruled out for Barrow Raiders but coach Darren Holt has an otherwise fully fit squad.

Holt said: "Having last week off certainly helped. The second half of our game against Halifax was very disappointing and we had a lot of things to work on in terms of the physical side of our game."

However, despite having only two injured players, Holt has revealed he will make a number of changes to his team.

"The changes this week will be changes I'd already planned to make in order to try a few things. Some of it is performance related, and some of it is trying a few new combinations. It's the ideal opportunity to do that."
