Dewsbury are desperate to be the team that ends Leigh Centurions’ winning run in 2014,

Leigh have won all nine Championship games and hare also in the Tetley’s Challenge Cup quarter-finals against Leeds Rhinos.

But the Rams are undaunted and plotting to end that record when the sides meet on Sunday.

“Leigh have gone out and spent money and are virtually a Super League team,” said Dewsbury coach Glenn Morrison.

“This is a similar situation to when we played Batley and there should be no problem in motivating the team to take on the league leaders.”

Dewsbury have no new injury worries from last week’s 40-20 defeat at Keighley Cougars and long-term absentee Aaron Brown is the only unavailable player for Morrison.

The coach added: “We have had big crowds for our last two home games, with over 3,000 coming against Wigan when they saw a good performance, and 2,000 against Batley when we got a good result.

“I hope the fans come out in numbers again and think of last week as only a blip as we aim to turn over the undefeated leaders.”
