Beattie: We will never stop fighting

Interim head coach Leigh Beattie vowed Bradford would do everything they could to improve after crashing to their seventh successive defeat on Sunday.

The Bulls lost 38-12 at Dewsbury to remain two points away from wiping out their twelve point deduction and leave Beattie pondering how he could turn things around.

“We must dust themselves off from this setback, we will assess what injuries we have got and go again. We will never stop fighting,” he told the club’s official website.

“A few circumstances altered the game for us – when you lose your half to a challenge off the ball and nothing is done about it, it has such a huge blow to the team.

“Joe (Keyes) was taken out of the game when we were ten points behind, we were still in it without a doubt. When you lose one of your starting halves, the game completely changes.

“We had no bench left, so Jordan Lilley was trying to control both sides of the field. It also didn’t help that Cameron Smith pulled out in the warm-up before the game.

“Losing Colton Roche to a possibly dislocated shoulder was a huge setback for us. They are all things that go against you.

“We know that this is extremely frustrating for the fans – yesterday’s performance has no excuses despite what we had against us. We promise that we will do everything we can to improve and get out of this rut.”
