FRIDAY promises to be a night to remember for Leigh Centurions according to their coach Paul Rowley.

Leigh can seal the leaders shield with victory over Featherstone at the Sports Village.

And Rowley expects the Sports Village to be buzzing for the penultimate home league game of the season.

“The LSV will be bouncing and our fans will be loud and colourful because Friday’s game is a big one,” he said.

“As a team we will approach it the same as every other with the focus on winning but games against Featherstone are always a bit special.

“We have beaten them twice already this season but that won’t matter. We could play them on Marsh Playing Fields and it’d be a big game.

“They have got some new personnel and a new coach since we last played them and have had a good run.”

Rowley says the team has already achieved its objective for the season by finishing in the top two but is demanding more.

“When we started the season we were set the goal of finishing in the top two from a business point of view,” he said.

“Having secured that, it’s about players achieving personal goals and the team being rewarded for their hard work with success.

“We want more big days this year and that’s what’s driving us on.”

Rowley says his toughest job this week will be deciding who to leave out.

“We’ve got a full strength squad and there are some good players waiting for a chance,” he said.

“It’s a bit of a nightmare for me at the moment deciding who makes the squad but it’s a nice position to be in.”
