Championship preview: Doncaster v Dewsbury

Doncaster coach Paul Cooke remains without injured pair Brett Waller and Lee Waterman, while Russ Spiers serves a one-match ban this week, ruling him out of Sunday’s Kingstone Press Championship clash with Dewsbury Rams.

Both sides are unbeaten heading into their round three fixture, leaving Cooke to praise Dewsbury’s approach.

Cooke said: “Dewsbury have had a top start. I like the way they play and they’ve made some very good signings for this season. They’re a difficult team to beat and are very well coached by Glenn Morrison.”

But the former Hull FC and Hull KR star believes Doncaster’s strength is in their defence.

“That side of the game has been very pleasing for us,” he said. “If we can keep teams to 12 points in a game then that gives us every opportunity to win.”

Rams coach Glenn Morrison has no new injury concerns following his side’s triumph over Rochdale Hornets, but has warned his players they must improve if they are to maintain their perfect record.

Morrison said: “Doncaster are going to be one of the top sides this year. They’ll be determined to maintain their record and if we play like we did last week, we won’t get away with it.”
