Batley Bulldogs will aim to build on last week’s draw against York City Knights when they face a tough trip to Leigh Centurions on Sunday.
Batley eased their Betfred Championship relegation worries when they picked up a point from a thrilling 14-14 draw against the second placed Knights, which helped the Bulldogs move four points clear of second-bottom Barrow Raiders.
Leigh currently lie fourth, a point behind York, as they chase a place in the end of season play-offs and the chance to claim a place in Super League next season and they overcame Barrow 24-8 last week.
Batley’s draw ended a five-match losing streak in the Championship and they will now target a surprise win over the Centurions as they look to further boost confidence ahead of next week’s 1895 Cup semi-final away to Sheffield Eagles.
Bulldogs winger Johnny Campbell has a fine record against Leigh having scored four tries in his last three games against the Centurions.
