SAINTS and Dewsbury are set to play their strongest squads possible when the two sides meet this Sunday.
Keiron Cunningham has indicated he will go with his best side possible at the match – and that will include all four of the club’s new signings.
The head coach said this week Jack Owens would be at fullback with Lama Tasi, Dominique Peyroux and Theo Fages all featuring in the clash.
Glenn Morrison at the Rams will match-up similarly too as he fine tunes his squad ready for the Championship season.
“I am confident about the ability of the squad,” Cunningham said. “We are 12 months more mature too and I’m sure we can do something this year.
“We’ll continue our preparation for the campaign on Sunday. We will start with a strong team and then mix and match as the game progresses.
“Fans will get to see the new signings and then, as the match goes on, some of the younger talent in the squad. Only injured players will be missing.”
Morrison added: “We see it as a good experience for the players. It’s an opportunity to test themselves against a top side on their own patch.
“We’ll be going down there as strong as we can in order for us to give ourselves the best chance possible of producing a good showing.
“We still have eight senior players on the sidelines with injury, and they won’t be available, but I’ll name the strongest side I can for the game.”
Tickets for the match, which kicks off at 3pm on Sunday January 17, are priced at just £10 (adult), £8 (concession and 16-21) and £5 (junior) in both the Hattons Solicitors West & Solarking South Stands.
