Coach Neil Kelly is looking for the Rams to turn round their fortunes as they host Rochdale on Sunday.
Coach Neil Kelly is looking for the Rams to turn round their fortunes as they host Rochdale on Sunday.

Dewsbury Rams will look to turn their fortunes around after suffering seven straight Betfred Championship defeats as they face games against sides below them in the table over the next 10 days.

The Rams entertain Rochdale Hornets on Sunday aiming to complete a double following an impressive 38-6 win at Spotland in February.

Rochdale have only won once this season and lie second-bottom, so Neil Kelly’s men have a good chance of ending their losing run.

The Rams then travel to Barrow Raiders for their re-arranged Championship clash on Sunday May 13.

The Rams slipped to a heavy 64-6 defeat away to London Broncos last week but they were competitive for much of the first half and only trailed 12-0 after 37 minutes before conceding a further 52 points.

Coach Neil Kelly said: “We have had a run of tough games and we are disappointed and upset at what has happened. But the performances haven’t been without a bit of an indication we are on the right track.”

“I can’t argue with the half-time score or the 64-6 at the end, but there were some signs in there we are being competitive.

“But in the second half, after they scored their first try, I could not defend the way we played.”
