Fax look to continue winning run

In-form Halifax are aiming for an eighth consecutive victory when they host struggling Dewsbury in Sunday’s only Co-operative Championship clash.

Matt Calland’s men kept alive their winning run by emerging 46-40 winners at Leigh last week.

Calland said: “There’s never a dull moment with this team.

“I’m really pleased to have got the win, but we’ve got to be a lot more ruthless. We seem to have a habit of letting teams get back into it and we’ve got to work on that. Against better teams we’ll get beat if we continue like that.”

He added: “There’s still a lot of improvement in us and there’s still a long way for us to go. We can still work on our defence.

“We’ll keep our feet firmly on the ground because Dewsbury are well coached by Warren Jowitt and you never get an easy game against them. They gave us a tough game earlier on in the season, and I’m sure this will be the same.”

The fixture comes too early for Miles Greenwood, as he continues his recovery from a knee reconstruction, although the former St Helens academy player could come back into contention later this month.

Dewsbury are still searching for their first win of the Championship season but coach Warren Jowitt remains upbeat, despite last week’s 36-32 defeat at Featherstone.

Jowitt said: “Apart from Keighley, we’ve performed all year long, even when we had our injuries. We should have won (against Featherstone). The character in the team is second to none.”
