The Dons hope their free-scoring Challenge Cup win in Wales will stand them in good stead for tonight’s screen test at home to Featherstone Rovers (7.30pm).

Doncaster are the second lowest scorers in the Championship, notching 152 points in nine games. Stark contrast to last season.

Tony Miller’s side averaged more than 40 points per game during last year’s Championship One double.

And star man Paul Cooke has admitted that Doncaster have been “found out a bit” at the higher level - and must work harder on the training ground to arrest a six-game losing run in the league.

However, Dons should take confidence from a professional display at South Wales Scorpions on Saturday.

They brushed aside the Championship One side as eight different scorers crossed the whitewash in a nine-try 52-22 Challenge Cup win.

Tonight’s game is live on Premier Sports.
