HIGH-flying Leigh Centurions hope for a double injury boost for their home clash with Widnes Vikings tomorrow.

Martyn Ridyard should return after he missed the trip to Barrow while Robbie Hunter-Paul is hoping the specialist gives him the all clear to resume full training and mount a late challenge for selection.

Barrow opened a 14-0 advantage last week and coach Ian Millward was happy that his squad was able to overcome the deficit.

“For the whole first half we only had 12 sets and we only completed seven,” he said.

“In the second half we had the ball for 23 sets and completed 21. When Dave Mills came on we had a bit more ball before half-time. We had no ball in the first 20 minutes.”

Leigh have now won seven games, a start Millward puts down to preparation.

He added: “If you look at most of our blokes, they’ve trained really hard, and this is more the rewards they are getting from their training, it’s not just coming to them.”

The Centurions’ next game will also be against Widnes after the two rivals were drawn together in the quarter-finals of the Northern Rail Cup on Thursday April 7 (ko 7.30pm) and televised on Sky Sports.

Leigh will play their Challenge Cup fourth-round clash with Catalan Dragons on Friday, May 6, at 8pm.
