ON the back of their 70-7 rout of West Hartlepool last weekend, Sandal will be looking for more of the same when they travel to Lymm today, Saturday.

The Cheshire side have not had the most auspicious start to their National 3 North campaign, having won just one of their four matches so far, but Crouchley Lane has not been a happy hunting ground for Jim Kilfoyle’s Sandal side.

Centres Mark Pease and Joe Allott, flanker Dave Martin and number eight Sam Whittingham are unavailable for Sandal while flanker Jonny Gatus is still a couple of weeks away from full fitness having sustained a hamstring pull against Rossendale.

Centre Joe Atkinson returns to the squad and second row James Riley makes a welcome first appearance of the season.

Sandal v Lymm (away, kick off 3pm): T Coad, A Orr, S Frewin, D McCormack, J Atkinson, J Ellar, G Wood, G Newman, J Purcell, J Heron, R Norbury, A Norbury, L Norbury, J Riley, R Overton, J Stewart, S Maguire, A Thompson.
