ADRIAN Lam has issued a note of caution to any players and fans fixating on future face-offs with Featherstone in the race for Super League.

Centurions remaining regular season games against Championship leaders Rovers in June and July (Summer Bash) will certainly have a massive bearing on top spot.

But head coach Lam insists it would be disrespectful to write-off any other opposition.

Leigh’s return to action at rivals Widnes on Good Friday is hardly a formality despite a Challenge Cup win over the Vikings this season and their host’s 12-6 defeat at Newcastle on Monday.

“I am not bothered about Fev in the sense of worrying about them,” said Lam. “We can’t look too far ahead in terms of the opposition everyone wants to talk about.

“For me, it is about making sure we treat every game with respect. There may be another team that gets up into the top two of three if we are not careful.

“We have to take care of ourselves first and foremost and respect all the other teams.”

Lam is grateful for the two-week break that kicked in after last Friday’s 44-0 whitewash of Dewsbury Rams at LSV.

“We have come through a difficult period, playing a lot of games in a short space of time, all away from home, bar last week,” he added.

“We are proud of what we have achieved and where we are sitting but there is lot still to do. We are one point behind first spot and we get an opportunity at that in the near future.”

The Widnes game will probably come too soon for injured props Chris Green and Mark Ioane though others with less serious issues will be fighting fit again.

Ben Reynolds didn’t feature against the Rams when Krisnan Inu marked his home debut with a try double in Leigh’s 13th successive win over their visitors.

“Ben wasn’t considered because he had been carrying a couple of niggling injuries,” explained Lam of his half back’s omission.

“He had played under the previous four weeks under duress, and I am proud of him for doing that. But he is one of those players who needed this break.”

Leigh have been selected for two more Monday night appearances before the Premier Sports cameras.

The visit of Brian McDermott’s Fev will take place at the LSV on June 13. And on July 25, Centurions visit Whitehaven- a trip which always brings back special memories of 40 years ago.

*Leigh will discover their semi-final opponents in this season’s AB Sundecks 1895 Cup on Saturday. Sheffield Eagles host Whitehaven (2.30pm) for the right to face Centurions for a place in the final, taking place ahead of next month’s Challenge Cup final at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
