Knights look to move into second

March is likely to keep faith with the side that beat Hunslet Hawks

York City Knights will go second in Championship One if they beat Oldham at the Huntington Stadium.

The Knights go into the game in third place but they will leapfrog their opponents if they win.

Coach Paul March told BBC Radio York: "It's a massive game. Players want to play in these games and everyone's looking forward to it.

"If we go second we can hopefully keep hold of that and put a marker down for the rest of the season then."

March said he wants to keep a settled side although Tom Haberecht could return after recovering from an ankle injury.

The young lads haven't played on telly before and it's up to us older heads to keep a tab on them

Oldham are currently in second place and March acknowledged they will be tough opposition.

"They've been a quality side for the last three years. They've probably underachieved in that sense," he said.

"We need to be on our game. Last year they came over as big favourites and we did a number so we need to do that again and start from minute one and not finish from minute 80.

"The biggest threat to us is a lot of the young lads haven't played on telly before and it's up to us older heads to keep a tab on them.

"If things aren't going our way, which happens, it's up to us experienced players to grab hold of them and just pull them in a bit."
