The Bulldogs have lost their last three league fixtures, suffering defeats against Dewsbury, Whitehaven and Barrow.
They are now in the bottom five, but Kear said: “Playing Sheffield, Featherstone, Halifax or Leigh would have been ideal this week because people’s expectations wouldn’t be that we’d come away successful, and what that means is that the pressure is off – and that’s what the players need.
“This week we can just look at the process of rugby league and concentrate on our own performance.”
He added: “The thing that pleased me most last week was the attitude. We were more spirited, more dogged and more committed, but we still came up short with our execution.
“There are just too many loose errors in our game, and it’s concerning because it’s the same errors that we’re making over and over again.”
