CARL FORSTER says a North Wales Crusaders’ victory on their return to action this weekend is not “mission impossible”.

Following a three-week break, Crusaders will be back out on the pitch at last for Sunday’s home League One showdown with Keighley Cougars.

The unbeaten start to the campaign for the Cougars was ended earlier this month by a 26-18 home defeat at the hands of Hunslet and head coach Forster told CruCast: “It certainly says to me that Keighley can be beat and, obviously, I believe we were better than (them), we deserved a win against Hunslet.”

Instead, two late tries ensure Crusaders lost out 22-14 at Hunslet at the end of April.

“I can expect a real big fightback from Keighley,” added Forster.

“They’ll want to respond, but, you know, we’ve got to look at that and go, well Hunslet beat them and we gave Hunslet a great game and it’s doable at the end of the day.

“It’s not mission impossible and we should go in there confident.”

North Wales Crusaders have won three and lost three of their six matches in the league this season and they currently find themselves in seventh place in the table.

Forster’s outfit have games in hand over the majority of the sides ahead of them, while Keighley sit second following their promising start to the campaign.
