Featherstone Rovers coach Andy Hay is looking for more consistency in defence ahead of his side’s tough run-in to their Kingstone Press Championship campaign.
After Sunday’s home match against relegated Barrow, Rovers have successive away fixtures at Leigh and Halifax and then host Sheffield before ending the regular season with a trip to Keighley.
Hay was pleased with Featherstone’s second-half fightback in last weekend’s 35-24 win at Whitehaven but he was unhappy with their first-half performance after they lost a 16-4 lead to trail 22-16 at half-time.
“We need to get off to a good start in games and we need to be consistent in defence,” he said.
“Our attack is almost there but to concede the number of points we did at Whitehaven is not where we want to be at this stage of the year.
“Our home form has been very good this year. We’ve got two home league games left and we’ll be looking to close out the season with some good performances to give the fans something to cheer about.”
