The Miners, though, went eight points clear when Joe Connor and Adam Thomason steamed in. And although Lane got back into the frame with a Danny Sowerby try on 74 minutes, plus Nathan Fozzard’s fourth goal, Leigh sealed a win that keeps them clear of the drop-zone with a last-gasp touchdown for Noah Lancelott and Sam Pilkington landing his sixth goal from as many attempts.
Andrew Badrock, with a brace, and Lancelott had crossed in the first half for the Miners, while Lane had led through tries by Lewis Price, Rob Matomosi (twice) and Connor McGrath.
