Donny character pleases Green

Doncaster interim head coach Pete Green was delighted with the character shown by his players in their 28-14 win over Keighley on Sunday.

The Cougars led 14-12 at the break, but Donny roared back in the second half to record a much-needed victory.

“This was a game that we knew we had to win and the lads were fantastic, they dug in and shown real character and the attitude from the players was first class,” he told the club’s official website.

“The problem over the past few weeks has been when the opposition has scored a try and then we have started to panic and haven’t reacted well, however we didn’t do that and we reacted well after they went ahead and pushed on for the win.

“We knew it was a massive game and I think Keighley built it up as a four-pointer – all the teams who are battling for a spot in the top four are playing each other, so we are trying to pick points up where we can.”

With trips to Workington and Whitehaven, along with a home game against Barrow during June, Green admitted the team needs to repeat the levels they showed during Sunday’s second half.

“We need to build some consistency in results and make sure that we are firing on all cylinders, these games are important now and we have to make sure that we pick up the points that we need,” added Green.

“It’s a massive month ahead for us as we have two trips to Cumbria and a home game against Barrow Raiders, and we need to take the confidence from the last two wins into those games.

“All of the squad want to be inside the top four at the end of the season – that has been our goal from the beginning of the season and that is not going to change now.”
