CENTRE Mark Percival has been given the OK after coming off the field in the win against Huddersfield with a head knock.

Saints travel to Hull FC on Friday looking to keep their back end of the campaign ticking over nicely ahead of the semi-final two weeks on Friday.

And after coasting to victory against a depleted Huddersfield last Friday, coach Justin Holbrook welcomes the fact that they will have a game on their hands against a Hull side playing for a top five spot.

Holbrook said: “Hull can still make the top five and that is what they are focusing on.

“Hull is a pretty hostile place to go with some passionate fans, but this is exactly what we need, just as the Cas game was the other week.

“You can’t play hard games at your best every week so we had the luxury last week of not having to exert too much, but this week we are back raring to go leading to the finals.”

Hull have been patchy this term, particularly since getting knocked out of the Challenge Cup and that has seen them slip out of the leading placings.

Nevertheless, they still have some match-winner and tricky players on their day.

They include England centre Jake Connor, a player who always stirs a crowd response.

Holbrook said: “We will worry about ourselves but look at the threats they can cause you and not get caught up in the other side of his game.”
