DONCASTER Mustangs virtually guaranteed themselves a Premier Division play-off spot by destroying rivals Yorkshire Rams.

The BAFANL confirmed last week that the Mustangs WILL be allowed to enter the end-of-season play-offs despite fears to the contrary.

Doncaster celebrated the news with one of the most complete performances in the club’s history as they won 34-0 in Leeds on Sunday.

A closely fought first quarter saw the only two points of the period go to the Mustangs when the hosts chose to concede a safety.

But the visitors began to impose themselves on the Rams in the second, as Martyn Lee (pictured left) connected with quarterback’s Graham Lightfoot pass and just kept his feet in bounds to score the opening touchdown.

Lightfoot then found Ian McCartney for a spectacular grab for Doncaster who led 18-0 at the half way stage.

Stuart Boor added a 29-yard field goal in a quiet third quarter before touchdowns from Lee and Chris Peel put the gloss on a superb Mustangs display.

Doncaster travel to Birmingham on Sunday hoping to cement a home tie in the play-offs.

The Mustangs were under the impression they had been banned from the play-offs for their decision to postpone their game with East Kilbride Pirates earlier in the season.

But the BAFANL have informed the club they will be eligible to compete - if they qualify.
