Barrow (H)

Recommended Posts

Well this is a big game and we have a good chance. Like us Barrow have come off the back of 3 games in 8 days including last Sunday against a full-time team. A must win game and we need to start well.

Such a big game and not many comments!!!!    

Might Annakin be back for this one? ..... and what's the hooker situation, are Day and Ward fit and available?

I think Day was injured and didn’t play at York with Whiteley in the warm up, but he didn’t play either. No idea about Ward. 

It really is a big game and, on last week’s showing, ought to win. I said ‘ought’ because we don’t seem to perform well for two consecutive matches; we can lose badly in consecutive matches though!

It’s also awkward across the valley as Batley travel to Swinton; lose that and we win and they will be feeling nervous.

Speakman-of the Dom variety? Is he signed or on loan?

Signed for the rest of the season. Even I know and I am currently some distance from Dewsbury. 🤣

Desperately unlucky against York.Play like that and we should win.

to lose  a game in the last few minutes can be considered bad luck when it happens once BUT not when it happens so often..Im afraid its called throwing it away and we are very very good at it for some reason

As for tomorrow;  we are at home so I will be going with zero expectation.  With the exception of Rochdale we seem to save our best for away games..

Assuming Danny King and Charlie Martin (?) miss out then looks a decent side. And Speakman back is a big boost, very underrated player.

Think Charlie Martin is still at Hunslet on seasons loan . and its full back Joe Martin in the 19 man squad ..

Yes we absolutely have to beat Barrow and I guess that does you a favour too .... for us... as you and Swinton are on the same points it doesn't really matter who wins... and as our points diff is competitive a Swinton Batley draw would be interesting ... especially if we beat Rochdale away!! ...... all 3 of us on the same points and hopefully a few points clear of Barrow and Rochdale.

What's happened to the absence of Morton?  Hopefully he will be back soon.

Interesting to see how McGrath goes with us in his month loan from Halifax.

Although we really could do with Dale, some things are more important. 

I will be the first one cheering when he's back but untill then Dale can take as long as he needs for me.

I’ll be hopeful and suggest a win, although I think it will be difficult as we know what they did at Featherstone. 

Dewsbury 26-22 Barrow 

FTS: Martin

MoM: Garratt 

Att: 772

Very sad family issues, Andy.

Looking forward to visiting tomorrow! Hope we can turn in the performances we did against halifax and fev but fear we'll play how we did vs toulouse. Any watering hole suggestions? 

The West Riding Refreshment Rooms (www.imissedthetrain.com) at the railway station, The Time Piece (Wetherspoons), Northgate and close to the ground, Hanging Heston WMC, with our own bars at the club in which everyone is welcome.
