Dewsbury Rams aim to end Championship season on a high

Lee Greenwood is keen to see his Dewsbury Rams side end their Championship campaign on a high when they welcome Oldham to the Tetley’s Stadium this Sunday.

In their final game of the season, Dewsbury can sign off 2021 with three-straight victories if they defeat the Roughyeds.

After a difficult campaign that has been hampered by injuries and Covid-related absences, the return of some key players has coincided with a return to form for the Rams.

In their final two away games, Greenwood’s men have beaten Sheffield Eagles and Heavy Woollen rivals Batley Bulldogs.

They will now be aiming to make it three wins on the bounce and give their home support something to cheer as the regular season is brought to a close.

“A win would put us in a better-looking position league table wise,” said Greenwood.

“Our overall record wouldn’t be too far off what anybody expected of us given the budget and the size of the club.

“It has been a horrible grind all season. We have just started to get a few bodies back and have picked up two good wins in the last couple of games.

“Sheffield got their strongest team out against us, we were still a bit disjointed and got the win.

“Batley have had a good season and put out a strong team and we did well, especially being down to 12 men for the last 20 minutes. We want to finish that off with another good result.”
