NRC Preview: Doncaster v Barrow

Doncaster coach Tony Miller could hand debuts to new signings Nathan Anderson and Gary King.

Miller is also keeping his fingers crossed over the fitness of several senior players, with Gary Ellery, Craig Lawton, Simon Brown and Scott Johnson all nearing a return.

There are no new injury problems for Barrow, with coach Steve McCormack warning his men: “Doncaster will be waiting for us”.

McCormack’s side lost 22-20 at Widnes on Sunday after Shaun Ainscough scored a last-minute try for the hosts. McCormack said: “It was frustrating but it was a great game.

“Our effort throughout the whole game was outstanding so there is a lot for us to take from it.”

He added: “We haven’t got the biggest squad so quite a few of the players will have to double up this week.

“We’ve got to win both our remaining games to make sure we qualify. We’ll be going full strength with the aim of progressing.”
