DEWSBURY head coach Lee Greenwood believes sharing their home with the Bulls is a win-win situation.

Bradford got their first taste of their new temporary base in Sunday’s friendly at the Tetleys Stadium.

They host York City Knights in the final friendly next weekend before the Championship curtain-raiser at home to London Broncos on February 2.

Greenwood is happy to help the Bulls after they were forced to quit Odsal.

“I’m not opposed to the ground share,” he said. “I’ve got a lot of respect for Bradford and I don’t want to see them in bother.

“I think there will be benefits for both clubs, keeping Bradford in business and allowing them to be competitive by playing here.

“I’m sure they’ll move back to Bradford sooner rather than later in a stronger position than how they left.

“If that provides us with some income to increase our playing budget or help with our facilities, then everyone’s a winner for me.

“I know the Bradford public and fans won’t be happy with it because you’re moving out of the city. But I’m sure they explored all the options before they came here.”

Greenwood is hoping the Dewsbury pitch can stand up to the extra workload of housing two clubs through the season.

He added: “That remains to be seen but we don’t tend to train on it.

“We’ve got great facilities here where we can move around. We don’t hammer it training-wise which it used to get back in the day before there was anything else here.

“We look after it but obviously it’s going to get a game on it at least once a week.

“But If you looked at the state it was in last year when we played Toronto and that was with no one else playing on it. We just have to be smart with it.

“I don’t want to see any club go under whether that’s West Wales, Leeds or Bradford.

“If helping them out this year means they’ve got to play here and our field’s a little bit muddy, I’m not really bothered.”
