Devils v Rovers – Preview

Devils v Rovers – Preview

by | Jan 15, 2016

This Sunday the Devils head to West Yorkshire to take on Featherstone Rovers at the Big Fellas Stadium (3pm)
With a good run our in last week’s victory at Spotland, head Coach Ian Watson will be looking for further signs that his new-look team are continuing to gel together.
Watson will have a couple of extra faces available from last week as injuries to the likes of Ryan Lannon and Ben Murdoch-Masila have cleared up and both will hopefully get a taste of the action.
As is often the way in February the weather might well have a part to play but the Devils will want to get the game under their belts ahead of next week’s major warm-up against Wigan Warriors at the AJ Bell.
Watson was happy with a lot of aspects of the Rochdale performance, despite his team falling 12-0 behind early on. Flaws have been worked on in training and he will expect to see some of the ring-rustiness gone for the second warm-up game.
