BOSS GLENN Morrison reckons the same attitude will bring a different result when his Dewsbury Rams side play host to Whitehaven tomorrow (3pm).

Rams were pipped 36-26 by Kingstone Press Championship Shield leaders Bradford Bulls on Monday and face a contrasting challenge against the team sitting bottom of the table.

“If they lose this weekend that’s them relegated,” Morrison said of tomorrow’s visitors.

“We have to beware the wounded animal and hope we turn up with the same attitude as we did on Monday and for the last couple of weeks. It is a big one for us because if we get the job done it will nearly cement us in the top-four.”

Morrison felt his team were unfortunate not to get something out of their Bank Holiday derby.

Dom Speakman (concussion) will miss out, but Tom Hemingway, Etu Uaisele, Lucas Walshaw, Paul Sykes and Joel Farrell are all back in contention.

And Morrison admitted: “It will be hard to change the side.

“We played really well and I have got a selection headache, which is good at this stage of the season. I think if the [Bank Holiday Monday’s] game had gone on five more minutes we would have had it. We just ran out of time.

“The commitment and the desire and the willingness to work for each other has been there the last couple of games and that is half the battle.”
