SAINTS will be without Lachlan Coote and Dom Peyroux for Friday night's visit of Castleford.

They will be presented with the League Leaders Shiels after the match,

Saints will be keen to get back out there after a frustrating defeat by Warrington at Wembley, but they face a Castleford side gunning for the top five after an up and down season.

Coach Justin Holbrook said: "Any team would be hard, with Cas figting to get play offs.

"But I'd find it as difficult playing London or Hull KR.

"There are 11 teams with motivation – ours is from within, living up to our own standards.

"That is why we are so clear at the top – because we pride ourselves in how we play every week.

"The other three teams we play are fighting for a spot in finals or to not be relegated, so the last three games are going to be hard.

"In terms of Cas, they have had injuries but they have really got going now and back to throwing ball about."
