THE NEXT two games are vital for Dewsbury Rams, coach Glenn Morrison admits.
Rams, who lost 34-6 at home to London Broncos two days ago, are eighth in the Kingstone Press Championship with three rounds remaining in the regular season.
They travel to bottom club Workington Town on Sunday and play host to Swinton Lions, who are seventh, a week later and Morrison said: “We want to try and finish in the top-eight, so we can get an extra home game when the competition splits.
“We don’t want to get relegated so we need to make sure we get some wins. If we do that we will put some daylight between us and the bottom.”
Morrison admitted London, who are second, were “too good” for his side.
“They defended really well and never gave us chance to play,” he said. “Half the team played well and half the team didn’t show up, which was disappointing.”
Rams had to reshuffle in the halves when Andy Kain went down ill on the morning of the game. Morrison said: “Bobbie [Goulding] has only been at the club a week and we had to throw him in at the deep end. He is still getting to know the players so we were a bit disrupted, but we need to fix things up.”
Rams’ medical staff will check on second-rower Scott Hale, who suffered an ankle injury.
