Match Preview and Squad announcement

Hopkins sidelined for Centurions

Sam Hopkins (ankle) is out for Leigh Centurions as they face the second of four matches in 12 days when they host Halifax on Wednesday.

Ben Davies could make his Halifax debut, while Steve Tyrer, Adam Robinson and Ryan Fieldhouse all come into contention for the visitors.

The trio missed Sunday's narrow victory over York City Knights, but are fit to face the Centurions.

Halifax coach Karl Harrison is hoping to move into the top two by securing a victory at Leigh Sports Village.

He said: "We were a little bit scratchy at times (against York).

"In rugby league you can't just turn up and get the three points. You've got to earn any win.

"It's a tough game, and if you turn up with any looseness or an element of softness, you'll get beat at this level.

"It's always a big occasion when Halifax turn up at Leigh, and we've got a chance of finishing in the top two.

"We need to really focus on ourselves. Sunday was a huge result was for us."
