Match Preview and Squad announcement

Duo set to return for Leigh

Leigh Centurions are set to be boosted by the return of Adam Higson from suspension, while Simon Finnigan is also pushing for a place in Paul Rowley's squad to face Batley Bulldogs.

Both players missed last week's 40-26 defeat at Featherstone, but Higson is now definitely available while Finnigan is keen to come back after a medial ligament problem.

Rowley said: "The play-offs aren't over for him, that's for sure."

Batley coach John Kear will check on Danny Maun (hamstring) before finalising his team to play the Centurions.

Ayden Faal (dead leg) and Miles Greenwood (foot) are both expected to play, despite being taken off during last week's 68-28 win over Workington.

Kear said: "With ball in hand we were very good, but the downside was conceding five tries - and some of them were soft.

"We've got plenty to take from it, but defensively we've got a lot of work to do. We've have identified areas we can improve upon."
