Keighley's director of rugby Graeme Sheffield is convinced that things are starting to go his side's way.

Having won promotion last season from SSE Yorkshire Division One, the men from Utley only picked up 15 points from their first 13 matches in North One East, but they have garnered ten points from their last four to haul themselves level with Middlesbrough on 25 points, and therefore be a point behind safety.

"The tide is beginning to turn, but we have some very difficult games to come," said Sheffield.

On Saturday, Old Crossleyans visit Rose Cottage, with Sheffield saying: "They are a very, very good side who beat us 22-19 on their narrow pitch in October - but they might give us problems on o wider pitch too."
