BRADFORD Dudley Hill first team manager Steve Wright thinks his side can continue their great start to their National Conference League First Division campaign with a win at Dewsbury Celtic.

Hill began their 2020 season in brilliant fashion, crushing play-off hopefuls Crossfields 40-10, while Dewsbury were also victorious in their opening league fixture, overcoming Barrow Island 42-14. The win fired the Bradford side top with Celtic their nearest chasers.

Wright believes his team can continue their winning form and is looking forward to crossing paths with one of Hill's former players.

He said: "They went through a little spell where they went down to Division Three but have got things together now.

"It is a tough place to go with their vocal crowd. We have had some good battles with them over the years.

"It is always a good game when we go up against (former) Jamaican international Danny Thomas who used to play for us. He is always a good character to have whether he is on your team or against you."

When looking back at that Crossfields victory, Wright was pleased with the fitness levels his side showed to keep going until the final hooter sounded.

He added: "It was a good performance to start the season off.

"We have had our best pre season in a while we are looking a lot fitter than we have in a long time. It showed by us scoring most of our points in the second half, which says a lot more about our fitness this year.

"We expect them (Crossfields) to be up there at the top, minimum to be challenging for a play-off spot, so it is always good to get the results against the teams which you know are going to be around you."
