DANNY McGee has warned his Keighley players they are not safe from relegation yet as they face a tricky test this weekend.

Keighley host fourth-placed Beverley at Skipton Road looking to ease any drop fears, as they find themselves in 10th place in Yorkshire Division One, just 10 points above the bottom two relegation places.

Head coach McGee is keen on his side cementing their place in the league way ahead of their final day derby showdown at Bradford Salem on Saturday, April 13. Keighley have lost 14 of their 22 matches so far this season, notching up 39 points.

It will be Keighley's first game in two weeks since they won 19-17 at Old Rishworthians.

Keighley are set to be boosted by the return of second row James Fox, tight-head prop Dave Smith and number eight Leigh Sugden this weekend.

McGee said: "It was good that we had a free weekend last week as we needed a rest as our first XV had picked up a few injuries. Even I had to play in our last game.

"We now have key players coming back in certain areas of the team. Hopefully that will add some stability.

"Beverley are on a good run. We played them in my first game back in charge. We have improved since then with our fitness, game management and organisation.

"I just want us to continue the way we have as it's been tough with selection. We have not had a consistent availability of players for a lot of different reasons.

"We are not safe yet. We need to build on a good performance in our last game against Old Rishworthians.

"We really want to finish the season on a positive and then have a good pre-season.

"There are a few teams battling it out and we are top of that. Hopefully we can pick up a few points before the last game of the season."

Meanwhile, McGee says the cup exploits of the club's second string side, Keighley Stags, has given him food for thought with his first-team selections.

Stags missed out on a place in the Merit Championship Cup final last weekend as they crashed to a 24-8 defeat to Sandal seconds.

Despite losing this semi-final by three converted tries, McGee says he was pleased Stags had reached this stage of the competition.
