RESERVE team players will be given a chance if Dewsbury Rams’ senior squad men don’t shape up, coach Glenn Morrison says.
Rams drew 20-20 with lowly Workington Town on Sunday, a week after struggling to beat bottom club Doncaster.
“It was the same as the week before,” said an angry Morrison. “We didn’t turn up to play, it was pathetic and we deserved what we got.
“It is a mentality thing, we spoke about it before the game, but I can’t prepare the players for the game, they have to do it from within.
“We have spoken about making sure we turn up with the right attitude, but they don’t seem to have taken it on board.
“We have got a second team who are doing well and we might have to see if they can do a job for us.”
Rams remain fourth in the Kingstone Press Championship table, but Morrison added: “That’s the only positive.
“If we keep playing like we are we won’t be up at that end of the table for long.
“We have got to turn it around.”
Jason Crookes suffered a broken nose in Sunday’s game and Morrison pointed out: “That’s five week in a row we’ve lost a player in the first half. That’s not helping, but no excuses, we have got to get some points in the next four or five games.”
