KC Expects Duo To Return

KEIRON Cunningham expects two of his front line players to be in the squad when Saints take on Huddersfield this Friday.

Theo Fages left the field in the first minute at Salford last Thursday with a head injury whilst Adam Swift missed the game with a shoulder problem.

But both should be fit when the Giants come to town.

“Theo is still feeling the bumps and bruises from last week but is on the road to recovery,” he said. “We have a long enough turnaround to get him right and we are hopeful he will be available. He has to pass a few progressions but he should be ok.

“Apart from that we are in good shape. Adam Swift is better than last week and he should be fit.

“But we have lost Jack Ashworth with an ankle injury for four to six weeks which is unfortunate. He has been in good form in the Reserves and would have had a run out over Easter.

“Matty Smith also had an injury against Salford but has trained well. He picked up a horrible dead leg against Warrington and if that had been any other player other than Matty I don’t think they would have played.

“It was touch and go to see if he would play but he was determined to take to the field and that is credit to him. At one point he couldn’t bend his leg, it was a bad one.”

Saints host a Giants’ side that is just one point behind them in the league standings, which makes the Friday’s game crucial as they look to climb the table.

“It will a tough game,” Cunningham added. “They missed Danny Brough last week alongside another couple of players and they will come back. Like Warrington, they will come here desperate for the win. They have been attacking really well, better than last year, but this week is 100 per cent about us.

“It’s about how we start and how physical we are. We have to start winning the collision battle.”

Tickets for the clash are now on sale from the Ticket Office at the Totally Wicked Stadium, by calling 01744 455 052 or online here.

The game will kick off at 8pm.
