Championship Preview: Doncaster v Leigh (Sun)

Doncaster coach Tony Miller will check on Paul Cooke, Kyle Kesik and Dennis Tuffour before naming his side to face Leigh Centurions.

Dan Scott could come back into contention after missing last week’s Northern Rail Cup semi-final as the Dons look to start securing their place in the Kingstone Press Championship.

Miller said: “We’ve 10 games left, seven at home, and we have to pick up some wins to make sure we stay in the division.”

Rob Parker and Martin Aspinwall remain sidelined for Leigh, but Paul Rowley is in confident mood.

Rowley said: “Every team targets consistency and we’re no different. Sometimes you need a bit of luck, whether it be injuries or the bounce of the ball, but we’re quite happy to be where we are.

“We’re right up in the mix at the top of the table and the impressive thing this year is that some of the tries we’ve scored have been phenomenal.”

He added: “Doncaster have got loads to play for. They’ll be wanting to bounce back in style after last week, and they’ve been pretty good all year.

“They’re a good side on paper and certainly a big side. Their back three bring the ball back very well and they’ve a couple of big boys in the middle who cause some damage.”
