Hull take on Harrogate this weekend and will be looking to get back to winning ways after their narrow defeat last week at the hands of league leaders Preston.
Harrogate still harbour ambitions of their own and will be looking to keep up the pressure on Hull and Lymm as they seek a play off place.
Hull will have the side that ran Preston so close available and will be hoping to iron out a few lineout problems.
Hull’s defensive effort, attacking flair and fitness will be needed to subdue the visitors who have proved a handful for everyone in National Division three.
Hull will be looking to get maximum points which means they have to exploit every scoring opportunity so they be hoping Stephen Hihetah and Mike Adlard get some ball to use their skills on the wings to stretch the Harrogate defences.
A close game is in prospect with Hull perhaps having the edge in the last quarter.
