Rams, who have lost their four games so far, visit Oldham tomorrow (3pm) and coach Glenn Morrison reckons better creativity and control could add up to a winning performance.

“I thought we played pretty well last week,” Morrison said of Rams’ 20-6 loss to London Broncos.

“Our forwards did a good job and got us to the right end of the field and defence was really strong, but unfortunately we didn’t have both halves creating opportunities for us.

“That’s the worrying thing, but we are working on it. If we can execute the right play hopefully things will click, we’ll get confidence on the back of that and we can go on a run.”

Oldham are just two points above Rams and Morrison admitted: “It’s a big game for us, we need to win. It’s hard when you are chopping and changing all the time, we haven’t had any consistency. The field’s no good so we can’t train on it and when we do train we don’t have enough fit bodies.”

Toby Adamson (elbow) and Scott Hale (shoulder) picked up injuries last week, Tom Hemingway has a broken thumb and Jody Sheriffe (abdomen) is a fitness doubt.

But Brad Foster (shoulder) is in contention to make his debut and Josh Guzdek (knee) could also feature for the first time this season after injury.
