Quote of the Week: 
“They have had some success with winning the Challenge Cup. They’ll have some good momentum and high spirits but as always, we have to focus on ourselves. We’ve lost our last two games, but the performance has been good obviously there have been different circumstances, but the performances have been pretty consistent all season. We want to continue to make this a difficult environment to play in and we are playing against arguably the best footballing team in the league. It’ll be a really good challenge for us, but our mindset is to win every game that comes toward us."
- Head Coach Seb Hines
