Ex­cit­ing en­counter promised

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - In Business -

AF­TER reg­is­ter­ing their 10th straight vic­tory in all com­pe­ti­tions, Widnes go for num­ber 11 this Satur­day with home ad­van­tage.

The Red-and-Blacks are set to en­ter­tain Heaton Moor at Heath Road.

Af­ter a plethora of trips on the road, it will be Widnes’s first home fix­ture for more than a month – and what a game it prom­ises to be.

Moor de­feated Andy McIn­tosh’s charges back in Septem­ber, when the vis­i­tors some­how man­aged to snatch de­feat from the jaws of vic­tory fol­low­ing a great sec­ond half fight­back.

Moor have made a promis­ing start to life in the ADM Pre­mier League and cur­rently lie in sev­enth place in what is a heav­ily con­gested mid­dle group in the ta­ble. They are a no­to­ri­ously dif­fi­cult team to beat, and their four losses so far have in­cluded two ag­o­nis­ing one-point de­feats at the hands of Liver­pool St He­lens and West Park.

Widnes, though, are a dif­fer­ent team now to the one who vis­ited Green Lane back in round two, and 10 suc­ces­sive wins will see them go­ing into the game full of con­fi­dence as they ap­proach the half-term break. The game kicks-off at 2.15pm.

Mean­time, the sec­ond XV will aim to re­turn to win­ning ways when they go to their coun­ter­parts from Liver­pool St He­lens.

That match also has a 2.15pm kick-off time.

Widnes’s thirds en­ter­tain Liver­pool St He­lens’ third XV, again with a 2.15pm kick-off.
