WIDNES Vikings can secure their Super League future by avoiding defeat against Catalans Dragons in France on Saturday.

Defeat, however, would see them plunged into the Million Pound game against Leigh Centurions the following week with the loser of that game falling through the Super League trapdoor.

Vikings expect Aaron Heremaia and Corey Thompson, who cleared his head check, to return but they will be without Lloyd White who injured himself in the act of goalkicking on Saturday.

Vikings boss Denis Betts said: “We have a tough trip and Catalans will be pleased to have got themselves back in this position.

“Their destiny is back in their hands, as is ours, one team will be in Super League the other in the million pound game.

“On the back of the way we played against London I am pretty confident.

“That team that controls the anxiety and handles it the best will be the one that comes away with the spoils.

“There is a lot of pressure on Catalans. They are the side that nobody expected here, the one that has spent more money and they are at home.

“Everything about being in Super League is piled back on them this week.

“This kind of pressure will be completely alien to those high-flying players.

“We know we can go there and win.”

Vikings will fly out on Friday and return after the game.
