Penrith Panthers v Canterbury Bulldogs

Thursday night, Pepper Stadium

After a crucial win against the Titans last weekend, Penrith has kept in touch with the top eight and remain just one win out from the last finals spot.

The Panthers host Canterbury in another big game for Anthony Griffin's men, although they'll have to do it without captain Matt Moylan, who has been left out of Thursday's game with a hamstring injury.

Bryce Cartwright returns but is only listed as a reserve, as Tyrone May will replace Moylan at five-eighth.

The Bulldogs' season is all but over, although they will welcome back James Graham after he overcame a neck injury.

Three wins in a row see the Panthers up and about in their quest for post-season football, and they'll be buoyed by their previous result against the Bulldogs, as they stormed to a 38-0 away win.

It won't be to the same effect, the Penrith will manage the same result here.

Panthers by 14.
