SANDAL will look to secure league points to pull away from the National League 3 North relegation places on Saturday when Waterloo RUFC visit Milnthorpe Green (kick-off 3pm).

Jim Kilfoyle’s men have suffered four defeats on the spin, the latest a 22-8 home loss against Chester at the weekend.

In contrast, Waterloo arrive in Wakefield with three wins and a draw from their last five matches and they sit a place and one point above Sandal going into the game.

Sandal triumphed 9-6 at Blundellsands last September in a close-fought match and Saturday’s game is expected to be just as tight.

Centre Danny Mitchell returns after recovering from the injury that kept him out of the Chester loss.

Sandal: T. Hodson, A. Orr, D. Mitchell, A. Hall, D. McCormack, D. Martin, G. Wood, G. Newman, J. Purcell, J.Heron, R. Norbury, A. Norbury, J. Riley, R. Overton, J. Duggan, A. Burgess, T. Hirst, A. Thompson, S. Whittingham.
