Forget all your worries and soak up the big game atmosphere.

That is what Dons coach Tony Miller will tell his players before tonight’s plumb Challenge Cup fourth round tie at Widnes Vikings (8pm).

Miller’s men head to the Super League giants on the back of seven straight league defeats, with a cup win in South Wales sandwiched in between.

But Doncaster’s head coach wants his players to put their league campaign to one side this evening.

“We’ll go there and enjoy ourselves and have a go,” said Miller.

“They’ve hit a bit of form so we know we’re in for a tough night.

“But hopefully there’ll be a good crowd and we’ll pick up a few quid for the club and have a good day out.”

Miller is remaining upbeat despite seeing his side drop to the foot of the Championship following their seven game win-less stretch.

“We keep saying we’ve been unfortunate but sooner or later I think it’s going to turn in our favour,” said Miller.

“We’ve just got to keep on believing in ourselves.

“You can see that from the effort and the team spirit that the commitment is there.

“I thought we finished stronger than Featherstone last week, and that’s a good sign.

“Our last six games have all been against top sides,” he added.

“I honestly think we’ll be alright. I can see us turning a corner now.

“There’s no panicking. Our form’s good. I expect us to start winning again.”

Widnes are currently tenth in the Super League. They won 36-6 at Bradford Bulls on Sunday.
