WINGER Tommy Saxton (pictured) aims to help Featherstone Rovers reach the Northern Rail Cup final at Blackpool for the first time this year.

Rovers, who visit Keighley Cougars in the quarter-finals on Thursday evening, have twice been losing semi-finalists.

“Reaching the Northern Rail Cup final is definitely a target for this season,” said Saxton.

“Featherstone have never got to the final before so hopefully this will be our year.

“It would be a fantastic reward for the fans if we could get to the final at Blackpool.

“Keighley are a good team. They’ve got a lot of experienced players there now so we expect it to be a challenge.

“We have been getting the right results but we are more than aware that there is room for improvement and we are concentrating on that.”
