WEST Bowling head coach Ryan Hunkin says his players have been fully focused for a fortnight on their vital basement battle at Hunslet Warriors tomorrow in Kingstone Press National Conference League Division Two.

They secured a vital win over rock-bottom Leigh East on July 7, overcoming an early red card, but they earned a rest last weekend.

Hunkin said: "The hot weather made the pitch unplayable so we had an extra week off to focus on this game at Hunslet.

"We've been working on our defence and the systems we want to play, as well as our work ethic as we haven't performed well this year."

Hunkin has faith in his side, and he said: "If we put a good 60-70 minute performance together, we can beat any team in this league.

"We have two huge games coming up against relegation rivals in Hunslet and Drighlington and if we win those, we'll have a good chance of getting out of danger.

"We don't need to focus on what the opposition do if we play well. We must stay strong when it gets tough and enjoy our time on the ball."

Hunkin bemoaned his selection issues, saying: "The challenge is getting a consistent team together, with players on holidays, weddings and stag parties.

"But we're pleased to be able to welcome Adam Reardon back to the club at centre after a short time away and Dan Gregory has been excellent in the past few weeks.

"Hopefully, Liam Darville will be available for Hunslet following his holiday too."
