'Langers' hopes to boost Roughyeds

SCOTT Naylor reported after last night’s training session that Oldham came relatively unscathed through Sunday’s 50-6 win against North Wales Crusaders.

Four-try Danny Langtree took a knock in the closing stages, but he is expected to be ready and raring to go again by weekend.

Third in Betfred League 1, Roughyeds go to sixth-placed Doncaster (3pm, Sunday), who are only two points behind them, although Naylor’s men have a vastly-superior for-and-against record.

With the two Cumbrian clubs on the same number of points and breathing down their neck, Oldham must win at Doncaster to be sure of keeping hold of third place.

“The good news is that everyone should be available apart from Adam Neal (concussion), Adam Jones (back injury) and the suspended Danny Bridge,” said Naylor.

That would mean Kyran Johnson and two hookers, Matty Wilkinson and Kenny Hughes, putting up their hands after injury, Hughes having been out with an ankle problem for several weeks.

Roughyeds beat Doncaster 32-12 at the Vestacare Stadium on June 3, but after last week’s 30-14 win at Hunslet, Richard Horne’s Donny will be full of confidence that they can reverse the result at the Vestacare Stadium.
