Preview: Doncaster v Blackpool

Dons coach Tony Miller knows his side cannot afford any more slip ups as they desperately try to chase a Co-operative Championship One play-off spot.

 

Miller watched his side lose 32-16 at York last week. Doncaster now have five games remaining, and Miller believes they will need to win at least four of those fixtures to qualify for the play-offs.

 

Miller said: “It was a blow to our play-off chances, and has increased the pressure to get a result on Sunday.”

 

Kyle Kesik could return to the Doncaster line up, while loan signing Ben Jones is in line for his home debut.

 

Blackpool coach Martin Crompton believes his side are still capable of securing automatic promotion by finishing top of Co-operative Championship One.

 

“We’re still in there for first place,” he said. “Hunslet and Oldham have got to come to our place, and there’s still a lot to play for.

 

“We certainly owe Oldham one, and Hunslet will be the same. Hunslet are setting the standard but there’s a lot of water to go under the bridge.”

 

Paul Anderson is struggling for the Panthers, but Neil Holland is fit to take his place in Crompton’s squad.
