Keiron Cunningham expects Friday's clash at Leigh to be ‘fiery'.
Saints return to the Centurions for the first time since 2005 with what looks set to be the biggest away following at the Sporting Village to date.
“It will be a tough battle for sure,” he said. “I am happy they are back in Super League. The game against Cas probably didn’t do them justice. It is a tough place to go and a tough first game for them.
“But what you saw on Friday (against Leeds) was the Leigh we know. Derek (Beaumont) and all the boys involved there deserve more credit than they are getting.
“It will be tough. Leigh and Saints always seem to get on but I’m sure they will be a fiery atmosphere on Friday night.”
KC will be able to call on the returning Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook to fill the void left by Joe Greenwood’s departure to the Gold Coast Titans.
“Louie was ready for week one but didn’t have enough miles in his legs,” Cunningham added. “Matty Smith is progressing well too. He is still in his boot and we’re doing all the things to make sure he is right for the rest of the season.”
Saints have been given an allocation of East Stand tickets for the game at Leigh on Friday after they sold out the South Stand.
