The Cornish Pirates say they want to prove their worth for the last game of the season.

Our guys travel to Leeds on Friday after three defeats on the bounce.

The home side are among the top teams in the Championship.

Player coach Gavin Cattle knows it will be a tough test: "The boys have trained really well this week with the positive intent of going up to play. It's been a long season but the last game of the season you always want to show your worth and you don't want to be dwelling on a bad performance so we've trained for it.

"We know it's going to be a big task and a challenge. Leeds are one of the top four teams and most probably the best attacking team we've played this year. The boys just want to give a good account of themselves and going by the way they've trained this week, that hopefully will be the case."

In National League Two, Redruth travel to Cambridge on Saturday for their last game of the season.

The Reds say they have got nothing to lose going into the match.

Our guys lost to the home side in their opening match.

But coach Ashley Morcom says they are feeling confident after two wins on the bounce: "It's nice to be able to go into our first game of the year where we haven't got to compete against relegation or there's no ties so it's nice to be able to just go up to Cambridge and enjoy it really.

"It's important that we respect Cambridge and give them a good game but on the same respects, we've got to go up there and we've got nothing to lose and we'll have a go at it."

Elsewhere, the Cornish All Black welcome Shelford on Saturday.
