ANTHONY Murray will want to see a repeat of a promising second half showing as the North Wales Crusaders continue their League 1 programme this weekend.

Crusaders have lost out in their last three matches in the league and victory will be the target on Sunday as they play host to London Skolars.

While disappointed with last weekend's home 26-18 loss at the hands of Doncaster, Murray was pleased with his side's second half showing as they fought back from a 20-0 deficit.

"In fairness, in the first half we put ourselves under too much pressure by not completing our own sets," said Murray.

"If you play against a quality team like Doncaster and don't complete your sets, they will punish you and they did that."

There was an improvement, though, and Murray added: "In the second half we came out and started to complete our sets and we didn't concede a try.

"We got ourselves back into the game.

"We were unfortunate not to get more out of the game than we did.

"They're a top-five team Doncaster and if you turn too much ball over to them, they will capitalise on that.

"We dominated large parts of the game in that second half and we were probably a bit unfortunate not to get more out of it than we did.

"We have got to respect possession a bit more.

"But we're not a million miles away.

"It was a game of two halves, really."

Last weekend saw debuts for Widnes loanees Dec Gregory and Will Tilleke and Murray said: "Both played really well.

"Will scored and Dec had a real good impact on the game.

"They really added to the team."

Next up is the home clash with London Skolars, who currently sit ninth in the League 1 rankings.

"It's another tough game," stressed Murray.

"They're an unorthodox team, London.

"They are coming off a few wins themselves."

Kieran Sherratt and Jordy Gibson are likely to be out, but Alex Eckley is expected to come back in this weekend.

The weekend League 1 programme will get underway tomorrow as Cornwall, on the back of their first ever win, play host to Hunslet.

It's a busy day on Sunday, with four matches scheduled.

Unbeaten leaders Keighley Cougars will have home advantage versus struggling West Wales Raiders, while there's another away day for Doncaster to look forward to, this time at Swinton Lions.

The other match sees Midlands Hurricanes hosting Rochdale Hornets.

There's one match in the Super League this evening as Castleford Tigers are at home to Huddersfield Giants.

Tomorrow, leaders St Helens head to Catalans Dragons in a repeat of last year's Grand Final.

Toulouse play host to Hull Kingston Rovers and Leeds Rhinos are at Hull FC.

On Sunday, Wakefield Trinity welcome second-placed Wigan Warriors and Salford Red Devils head to Warrington Wolves.
