Following a 25-17 defeat on the road at bottom club Knottingley last week, skipper Phil Watson’s men will look to bounce back with a home win over visitors North Ribblesdale at Silver Royd tomorrow. This will be their first home game since the 13-0 defeat of Bridlington on the 12th of January. Unbeaten at home since October, they will look forward to avenging a 30-23 defeat on the road also back in October. Tries from Zbynec Schutz, Tom Ratcliffe and Luke Raines meant that the Seasiders were always in touch in a thrilling clash but four tries for the Settle-based outfit saw them to a bonus point victory. Since a surprise 23-22 win at (then) league leaders Huddersfield YMCA in October, North Ribb have won only two league games with back-to-back wins in December; 32-26 at Ilkley and the 33-10 home defeat of Old Brodleians. Their last two games have been away from home, both in south Yorkshire; a 22-16 defeat at Barnsley and a 23-8 reverse at Dinnington last week. Sam Warren and Corry Dennis who missed the trip to Knottingley with injury and Graeme Jeffrey who was unavailable return to action. The Scarborough side is: HARRISON DENNIS JEFFREY,RATCLIFFE YOUNG STEWART SCHUTZ CUTINO RAINES DRAYTON WATSON HOGGARD PURDY WARREN AUSTEN. Substitutes: IAN WILLIAMS, NICK INGHAM and PAUL WHITE
