Warrington prop Chris Hill says he cannot face the prospect of losing to his former team Leigh in the Challenge Cup quarter-finals on Saturday.

The 27-year-old moved to Wolves from Leigh for the start of the 2012 season after more than 150 appearances for the Centurions.

It will be the first time the England forward has faced his previous side.

"I'd never live it down [if Warrington lost] I don't think, as I still live in the Leigh area," he said.

He told BBC Radio Merseyside: "It will be an interesting tie and especially one for me as well, obviously with playing for Leigh for so long."

Championship leaders Leigh have lost just once in the league so far in 2015 and have already beaten Super League sides Salford and Wakefield in the Challenge Cup.

Tony Smith's Warrington, meanwhile, have lost three of their last four games.

"We've got to put a few bad results aside and crack on with the Challenge Cup now," added Hill.

"They've got two good half-backs, a good pack and they play a bit like ourselves with chancing their arm a little bit.

"They have a lot of Super League experience and I think that is what is getting them the wins."
