Rams need to be clinical against high-flying Robins

DEWSBURY Rams boss Glenn Morrison has said that his side must take the chances that come their way, when they take on Hull KR at the Tetley’s Stadium on Sunday afternoon (3pm) writes Ben McKenna.

Morrison is ready for a difficult game as his side comes up against the league’s only undefeated team, with Hull KR winning all five games so far this season .

Dewsbury are currently at the other end of the scale as the only team yet to win a game in the Kingstone Press Championship.

The Rams have only managed to score 14 points in four games this term – and Morrison believes his side must be more clinical if they are to turn their poor form around.

“We have been getting into the right positions in games but we haven’t been able to come up with the proper play or the right pass at the crucial time,” said Morrison.

“There have been fixtures we could’ve won this year and this Sunday we need to take the opportunities when they arrive.

“Hull KR were a Super League side last year, they have a former international coach in Tim Sheens

“I think they are going to go through this competition pretty easily.

“It is going to be a very tough test for us and we are looking to put in a good performance.”

Dewsbury will have had a week’s break after their game against Oldham was postponed last Sunday due to a waterlogged pitch.

Morrison was disappointed to have seen the game called off but admitted it could be a blessing in disguise as it has allowed a few of his players out with injuries more time to recover.

He said: “It is good that it gives us a chance to get a couple of players back fit and playing again.

“It is frustrating at the same time as the boys were ready to go and get a result, we looked at things that needed fine-tuning from the London game but it wasn’t to be.”

Full-back Josh Gudzek has had an extra week to work on his fitness as he prepares to make his return from injury, with second-rower Aaron Ollett also in contention.

“We are still deciding if Aaron Ollett will be fit enough to play, Josh and Aaron are both desperate to play as they are ex-Hull KR, they want to show them what they are made off,” added Morrison.

“The number of injuries in the side hasn’t helped us so it will be nice to have more names to choose from as the weeks progress.”

Dewsbury have also announced that their Challenge Cup game against Newcastle Thunder has been scheduled for Friday March 17 at 8pm.
