York pushed leaders Leigh Centurions close last week before losing out 48-38 and coach Dave Woods admitted: “We did some good work, but then we’d come up with a missed tackle and they’d score.

“We have to concentrate more.”

Hunslet Hawks player-coach Paul March is set to return to action against Batley Bulldogs.

Winger Richie Barnett could also feature after recovering from a knee injury, while March is hopeful that dual-registration signing Ben Gledhill will make his Hunslet debut.
