GENERAL manager Geoff Roberts is targeting three bonus-point wins from Sedgley Park’s final three games to keep the pressure on National Two North leaders Sale FC right to the end of the campaign.

A sixth successive victory saw the Tigers storm to a 43-10 win against Huddersfield last weekend – their seven tries on the day adding to their bonus-point tally for the campaign.

And while Sale also won, at home to Chester, Sedgley closed the gap at the summit to just a solitary point.

The table-toppers still have a game in hand but Roberts says the more pressure his side can apply, the better chance they have of capitalising on any slip-up in the final weeks of the season.

“You never know what could happen,” Roberts told the Bury Times.

“We both won again on Saturday but we edged to within a point.

“We also stretched our advantage over third-placed Tynedale which is important as they also have a game in hand.

“There are three games left for us, two of which are at home, so we just have to keep doing what we are doing and see.”

Saturday’s home win against Huddersfield saw Danny Maher and Max Skofic score two tries apiece, with Hallam Chapman, Shaun Needham and Jamie Harrison also on the scoresheet. There were also two conversions apiece for Steve Collins and Matt Riley as Huddersfield were swept aside with relative ease.

The Tigers now visit Leicester Lions on Saturday in their final away game before ending with back-to-back home games against Sheffield and Sheffield Tigers.

Roberts added: “Leicester are a funny team as you never know what to expect from them.

“They have had a mixed bag of results this season and we beat them just a few weeks ago at our place.

“But they will be tricky opponents on their own patch so we have to be ready for that.

“The form we are in, though, we have more than enough to get another win.

“We made it look easy against Huddersfield.

“To be fair, when they came at us they showed they were no mugs.

“But when we turned it on we were just unbelievable to watch.

“The try of the game came from Jamie Harrison who has scored some important ones for us.

“From a back-line move he ran through from inside our half.

“Danny Maher got two and so did Max Skofic – his coming from driving mauls.”
