Saints Lock In On Vikings

THERE may be just two games to go before the semi-finals but Keiron Cunningham is not allowing his team to focus on anything other than Widnes.

Saints travel to the Select Security Stadium on Sunday (3pm) to take on a Vikings team that cannot make the top four.

But that makes them even more dangerous according to the club’s head coach.

“We still don’t know where we will finish in the top four,” he said. “It is a good entertaining group of teams up there and anyone can beat anyone. Look at the criticism Wigan came under after the Widnes game… and then they go and do a great job at Hull FC.

“Warrington are performing well too and are probably the best side in the last block of games. They won before the cup final and then sent kids to Catalans and came away with the points. That is testament to how well they are playing.

“If you have any ambition to win the comp then you will have to beat a good side along the way. We will take wherever we go and do the best job we can.

“Until then, we are focused on our next game and that is Widnes on Sunday.”

He continued: “We have to go and do a job there. We are fairly fit and healthy and have to make sure we do the right things.

“Widnes are in the same situation as Castleford – they are playing carefree. They did a great job at Wigan and had a good dig against Warrington. It is always a tough game on their ground and it will be physical.

“It is hard to prepare against sides that having nothing to play. It is usually when they are at their most dangerous.

“But we want to keep on chugging along and getting better each week.

“We know we have to start well but perhaps we have made it big a deal. It has possibly created a psychological wall were we are nervous about our starts.

“We just have to get on with it because the anxiety doesn’t help.”
