Nottingham's Delaney looks to build play-off momentum

Nottingham Rugby

Nottingham director of rugby Glenn Delaney is eager to build towards the play-offs by securing a third Championship win in a row on Wednesday.

The Green & Whites host Leeds in a twice-postponed game at their Lady Bay training ground because Notts County play at Meadow Lane in the evening.

The match, Nottingham's third in 10 days, kicks off at 1400 GMT.

Delaney said: "Recent performances have been encouraging and we must continue in the same vein. It's about momentum."

Nottingham are already assured of their place in the play-offs but Delaney feels heading into the knockout stages in good form is vital.

"We managed two very good victories last week with a completely different side starting each match," Delaney added.

"It's a credit to the players that they delivered the required performances and it shows the strength in depth that we now have.

"In some ways, this backlog of matches has been good for the squad. We've needed to rotate to give ourselves the best chance of winning and it's meant that all members of the squad are being utilised. Getting this game time in all of their legs before the play-offs can only be a good thing."
