Rams coach Glenn Morrison is backing home star Gary Sykes to win the British title tomorrow night.
Sykes was guest at the Good Friday derby between Dewsbury and Batley and several Rams players are expected to cheer the 30-year-old on against Jon Kays.
Morrison said: “Gary is a local boy and what he is doing is great for Dewsbury.
“We wish him well and hope he gets the victory all his hard work in training deserves.
“We would love to welcome him back to a future game with the belt.”
