KEIRAN Gill, who has scored a try in each of his two games for Oldham while on loan from Castleford Tigers, will be hoping to make it three in a row against Swinton Lions at Bower Fold tomorrow (Sunday).
He made a try-scoring debut in our 26-18 win against Whitehaven and followed up five days later with the first of our four tries in a terrific 24-16 win at Sheffield.
That wasn’t only our first away league win of the season, but it gave us the double over Mark Aston’s full-time professionals.
And our only other victory on “foreign soil” was our headline-grabbing win at Super League side Hull KR. As our chairman Chris Hamilton says in his programme notes for the Swinton game (24 colour pages, fantastic pictures, only £2): “Work that one out !”.
A win against Swinton would give us our third win in a row for the second time, with the potential to take us above Sheffield Eagles, depending on how they go on at London Broncos.
Gill’s left-wing partner Jamel Chisholm will also be keen to score, given that he currently leads our try-scoring charts with nine — three more than his wing partner Adam Clay
Danny Langtree, also with six, is top forward try-scorer, followed by Kenny Hughes, with five.
Top scorers: Chisholm 9, Clay 6, Langtree 6, Holmes 5, Hughes 5.
Swinton recall Connor Dwyer, Andy Bracek and Stephen Nash to their 19-man squad following last week’s heavy home defeat by Halifax.
Squad: Chris Atkin, Ben Austin, Josh Barlow, Matty Beharrell, Andy Bracek, Connor Dwyer, Gabriel Fell, Dan Fleming, Macauley Hallett, Jordan Hand, Rob Lever, Stuart Littler, Rhodri Lloyd, Liam Marshall, Steve Nash; Shaun Robinson, Andy Thornley, Luke Waterworth, Ben White.
