DEWSBURY RAMS coach Neil Kelly wants more of the same when his side visit high-flying London Broncos tomorrow (3pm).

Successive wins over Batley Bulldogs and Bradford Bulls have raised Rams’ hopes of avoiding relegation from the Kingstone Press Championship.

Kelly was in charge of Widnes Vikings when Andrew Henderson – now London’s team boss – had a spell as a trialist in 2004 and they roomed together during the World Sevens in Sydney.

Kelly has been impressed with the work former Castleford Tigers captain Henderson has done at London – who are on a seven-game winning run – and he insisted: “We are just concentrating on performance this week.

“If you get your performance right what comes pretty quickly after that is the result. If we produce a performance and statistics like we produced last week we will be really, really competitive.”

Kelly reckons second-bottom Rams are beginning to move in the right direction.

He added: “In the Challenge Cup game against Wakefield last month we saw some good spirit.

“We let ourselves down against Featherstone in our next game, but with the two results since there are signs of a bit of a sea change. That’s reflected also in numbers at training – we are getting better numbers on the training field.”
