DEWSBURY chairman Mark Sawyer says the pressure is on the Rams as they look to secure their first league win of the season against Bradford Bulls on Sunday.
The Rams won their first game since September in a 36-8 success over League 1 side Newcastle.
However Sawyer believes that the win has not done much to alleviate the pressure on Dewsbury, as they are still yet to score more than six points in a league game this season.
Dewsbury face a difficult run of games over the coming weeks as they travel to Bradford and Halifax as well as hosting Featherstone and Batley.
Sawyer says that the Rams need to win a league game fast, in order to prevent them from dropping away from the sides above them.
BATLEY boss Matt Diskin believes that his players have the quality to replicate the team’s success from last season – but they must add consistency after a stuttering start.
