Doncaster Knights face one of their toughest tests on the road since returning to the Championship in tonight’s game against London Scottish.

Only leaders Worcester and second-placed Bristol have beaten the Exiles at the Athletic Ground in the league this season.

Knights’ 19-9 defeat in November is the only time this season that they have failed to score a try at home.

The South Yorkshire side had lost their previous three league games going into that fixture but have lost just once in their last five league and cup games and confidence in the camp is sky high following last weekend’s B&I Cup semi-final win over Bristol.

“What we have got to do is to take the momentum from the Bristol game into tonight’s match,” said forwards coach Glen Kenworthy.

“We know it’s going to be tough and I think that they are probably one of the few teams who have done a number on us this season.

“But we showed against Bristol, as we have done in other games, that we are in a false position in the bottom three.

“We definitely feel we should be in mid-table and we might finish a few places higher than we are but the main focus at this moment in time is safety.

“We’ll take that as a launching pad for next season but obviously the higher we can finish this season the better.”
