Ex-Lion, Andy Ackers, will watch the Broncos take on his former club from the side lines this weekend, but says Swinton’s Challenge Cup scalp of Huddersfield Giants last weekend will definitely have lit a fire in their bellies.
“The victory over Huddersfield Giants was huge. Huge for the game, but most of all Swinton. It shocked everyone.
“That win for the Swinton boys would have put loads of confidence in them coming to the big smoke. They will try to kick on their season from that win.
“I know Duffs and the lads have been doing it tough with injuries, but so have we.
“We can expect a tough test, and the first 20 minutes or so will be all guns blazing. They’re definitely going to be up for it, but so are we.”
The Broncos face Swinton Lions this Sunday, 30 April, 3pm at Trailfinders Sports Club. Get tickets here.
