ROSS Peltier admits tomorrow’s trip to Featherstone Rovers is a huge fixture for the club’s play-off ambitions – insisting the race for a top-five spot will go down to the wire after a ‘Manic’ May.

The 27-year-old is poised to return to the first-team fold having sat out the Summer Bash clash with Halifax last Saturday night.

John Kear’s side have enjoyed two titanic tussles with Rovers in 2019 – edging both encounters with one-point victories (17-16 and 27-26).

Tomorrow promises to be a thrilling third instalment and believes the upcoming Coral Challenge Cup quarter-final will lead to the players having a point to prove at the LD Nutrition Stadium.

Peltier said: “It is one of those grounds – a tough place, the fans are close and there is an intense atmosphere and Sunday will be no different.

“The big games do not stop do they? We have Featherstone this weekend, then Halifax, then Batley and Leigh and then Halifax again, there are no easy fixtures.

“From Easter it has been mental, it has been manic but these are the games we need to deal with to be in the top five.

“We are right in the mix and it will go down to the wire – we just have to pick up there points where we can and enjoy the ride.

“We have shored things up since the start of the season and picked up some good wins, we have a lot of fight in us and it will be exciting.

“The quarter final is in the back of everyone’s minds because we all have a point to prove against Featherstone – we all want to secure a shirt for the quarter-final.”
