LEIGH Centurions head coach Ian Millward is looking forward to the arrival of Widnes Vikings on Sunday Leigh’s comeback victory at Barrow saw them stretch their unbeaten run to seven games, the longest in the game at the moment.

“We got behind on the scoreboard but then kept our composure,” he said. “It was about staying with it and kicking on. There was still 15 minutes to go when we went in front.

“I was really pleased. I thought everyone tried really hard and when anyone made a mistake, they corrected it and there was plenty of support in the team.”

Vikings, who have invested wisely in their squad, were outplayed last weekend by Hunslet Hawks, but Millward is taking nothing for granted.

“You can classify them as a top-five team as they are talented and have spent wisely. Iit will be a really close contest and they’ll be all prepared and ready to go.”

With only Martyn Ridyard due back of his injured troops, it means Steve Nash, Ricky Bibey and Robbie Hunter-Paul sit the big game out, but Millward reckons it is a game that should excite the fans.

“It’s a local derby and we don’t get enough of them,” he added.

“It’s one that we don’t want to leave to chance and there is a lot of history between the clubs so there won’t be any love lost. It’s going to be on again on Sunday.”
