Leigh Miners make there final visit of the season to Cumbria on Saturday to take on Kells in Round 19 of the NCL Kingstone Press Cider Premier Division, kick off 2-30pm at The Welfare.

Miners make the long journey North up the M6 on the back of yet another defeat at home against Pilkington Recs last weekend, the contest being well in the balance going into the final quarter before the visitors from St Helens took the game with two late tries to win 32-14. The defeat leaving Miners well adrift at the foot of the table, six points from safety with only four games remaining.

The lads going to take on Kells this weekend know they have a tough task on their hands against a playoff chasing Cumbrian outfit and although Miners may now need a miracle to escape relegation it is still mathematically possible at this stage to escape the drop, so the lads will be hoping their fortunes change as they look to pick up a much needed victory.

Coach Dave Rowlands makes six changes from the side that lost to Pilkington Recs last weekend with Will Ashworth, Lewis Clarke, Mitchell Cox, Tony Doyle, Lewis Lingard and Joe Lorimer coming into the side for Matt Astley (holiday), Frankie Halton, Jimmy Muir (injured), Josh Oaks, Adam Thomason (wedding) and Josh Ward.
