JOHN Kear says his Bulls side need to learn lessons quickly from their narrow cup victory ahead of their return to league action this weekend.

The head coach couldn't hide his fury after watching his side narrowly scrape through 14-12 at League One side Keighley Cougars to advance into the Challenge Cup fifth round, when they will host Featherstone.

Now Kear says he will sit down with his coaching staff and squad to anaylse the areas they can look to improve.

He said: "We will review the Keighley game in an analytical manner and pick up the few positives we can from it. We have won and that's the main thing.

"I would rather play poorly and win, than play well and lose. We have got to learn from the Keighley game. We didn't play well, individually or as a group."

Bulls return to Championship action after a two-week break on Sunday when they welcome Dewsbury Rams to Odsal.

Kear's men are seventh in the Championship, after four wins from their opening games. Dewsbury are two places and three points behind the Bulls, following four defeats from their first seven matches.

Bulls were more convincing last time out in the league as they grabbed a 26-12 win over Leigh Centurions.
