Player coach Rich Neil isn't expecting it to be an easy task.

He said: '˜It certainly won't be the walk in the park league positions might suggest.

'˜We will have to make sure we carry on with the hard work that has got us where we are.

'˜The players feel positive without getting too carried away.

'˜We have got ourselves into a good position and must look to build on it.'

Neil is boosted by the return of centre Will Pickett from his ankle injury.
