Dewsbury Rams head coach Lee Greenwood was delighted with his sides draw against Halifax as the Rams came from behind to snatch a well earned point.
The result moves Dewsbury up another point on the table as their relegation rivals all lost on the day bar Swinton who won against Barrow.
On the draw against Halifax, Greenwood said: “We are in the end delighted to get a point, I thought the effort we put in for 80 minutes showed that we at least deserved that. We had a patch at the beginning of the second half where we made a few individual errors and we left ourselves a lot of work to do and Halifax got on top.
“We spoke about that where Halifax like to start fast and get the job done and I thought that it was going to be a similar story when they got 12 in front and then 12 again. There hasn’t been many times where we have come back and shown character and felt like we have snatched it late on. There is obviously technical stuff that we can pick out of it, too many individual errors which is a constant theme for us. Four games in a row now where the lads have turned up with the right attitude and maybe we should be sat here on more points. However I know when we turn up there is a decent side in there. We deserved a point at Sheffield and could have won at York, and now obviously drawn today.
“It’s a bit of different feeling coming out of the game as we have come back, it isn’t a win and doesn’t feel like a win as it’s only a draw but it’s a good point for us to get. This today and next week at Rochdale were and are always going to be vital games. Barrow have gone to Swinton today needing a win and haven’t got it. They would have thought Halifax coming here today would have beat us, and on that side of it, this is a big result. Batley have lost to Leigh, Barrow have lost to Swinton and Widnes will hopefully lose to Toronto and now the table looks slightly different to what it did before today’s game.
“It doesn’t really change anything massively table wise, but it does in our dressing room, for the last four games I think again we have turned up right and it would have been very harsh had we lost again. That would have made it three losses in the last four, where really we have deserved more out of the last four, and that is huge for us as a dressing room moving forward now. I think we can take things into next week and into the rest of the season now, there is a lot better vibe around the place now because I am now starting to know what the lads can now do when they rock up and play. I think the lads are now producing things effort and attitude wise and I am certainly not going to go in and start having a go at them when I know they have rocked up and done well. I know from this that we will pick up our fair share of points to try and stay up in this division.”
