DEWSBURY RAMS will travel north to face Workington Town tomorrow (3pm) knowing a win would virtually secure their place in the Kingstone Press Championship next year.

Rams are fourth in the Championship Shield table, seven points ahead of second-bottom Workington. There are six games left and Morrison said: “I think if we win this one we are safe.

“I think we would have to lose every game and the others win every game for the rest of it for us to drop down, so it is a big game to take the pressure off us and look forward and try and stay in the top-four.”

Games in Cumbria are rarely easy and Morrison is expecting a battle.

“They knocked us off a few weeks ago,” he recalled.

“They scored a try and kicked the goal after the hooter. That was a vital two points they took off us, but if we have the right mindset I am sure we can go there and get a result.”

Rams began their bottom-eights campaign with a tough 36-24 win over Swinton Lions last Sunday and Morrison wants to see a similar approach tomorrow.

“Swinton came hard, they are a big strong team, but we played really well,” he said.

“We were 22-0 up in the first half, we stuck to the game plan, managed the game well and defended well.

“We want more of that. We took a lot of positives out of it, but there is still improvement in us.”
