GIANT killers Haydock will have a big travelling support when they renew their Challenge Cup rivalry with Oldham on Sunday.

The sides met two years ago in the televised cup tie - and the North West Men’s League outfit shocked the Roughyeds by taking an 8-0 lead before succumbing to the semi-professional League 1 outfit.

After two good wins in the early rounds against Shaw Cross and Normanton, the Yickers are here again - and go in good heart despite having a few injury doubts.

Former Saints wing Chris Smith, who coaches Haydock, said: “We have had a few knocks so are going to have an extra session on Saturday morning to have a run through.

“A couple of those are some of my better players too so hopefully they pull through.

"I have told them not to put their hands up if they are not fully right because we can't have them pulling up after five minutes.

“I have got lads who can step up if needs be.”

Haydock put in a creditable performance when they played Oldham at Stalybridge in round four in 2017.

Those memories can stir the class of 2019 into action this time around.

Smith said: “We have some really good memories from last time out.

“When you are in the Challenge Cup, and being pitched against a pro club, it is a massive day for any amateur club.

“Our spectators are behind us and we sold three buses out within a week of getting that draw.

“It is a community thing for us at Haydock.They will get behind us.

"Last time we played them we gave them their biggest crowd of the year which is pretty mindblowing."

Oldham, coached by former Bradford centre Scott Naylor, have won their last two games.

“I have watched them a few times and other amateur teams have done it in the past so it is all on the day.

"We know it is a tough ask, but the lads will be up for it and we are going there to play and go for it like last time.”
