Ward delighted by Broncos' fighting spirit
Danny Ward was delighted to see London Broncos fighting for their lives as they ensured the relegation scrap will go to the wire.
The capital club have been scrapping away for their Super League status all season but that pressure doesn't appear to have made them crack.
They went into Friday's game against relegation rivals Hull KR knowing that a loss could consign them to an immediate return to the Championship.
But they came away from Craven Park with a win and have every opportunity of beating the drop with one game still left to play.
Matt Gee and Brock Lamb crossed over to hand Broncos a 12-0 half time lead but the second period proved to be a much tighter affair.
Rovers battled back and moved into a 16-14 lead, however, London captain Jay Pitts scored in the 78th minute before Kieran Dixon added the extras with the boot to wrap up a 20-16 triumph.
Speaking after the dramatic win, Ward said: "We're the team that won't go away. That was an 80-minute performance. And we've got one more game to pull off now.
"We've got a four-way battle at the bottom now. But it shows the quality of the competition.
"It's mental, madness and great for the neutral - but not too good for those involved. I'm not sure how many years in coaching I've got left if it's like that - it might be a short career.
"This is up there with one of the best groups I've worked with. I'd love to play in this team. You can see the camaraderie and will to work hard for each other."
Broncos take on relegation rivals Wakefield Trinity in their final match of the campaign next Friday, while Hull KR and Huddersfield Giants, who are also in danger, face Salford Red Devils and Catalans Dragons respectively.
