PREVIEW | Horne embracing Whitehaven clash

10th March 2018

Richard Horne says he is looking forward to seeing his side go up against one of the stronger teams in Betfred League One when they take on Whitehaven at the Keepmoat Stadium this weekend.

The Cumbrian side finished just three points behind champions Toronto Wolfpack in 2017, and Horne believes they will provide the Dons with their toughest challenge of 2018 so far.

"I'm really looking forward to it, it's probably going to be the first time this season where we will really be tested, so it's a good opportunity to see where we are at in terms of our performance," he said.

"Whitehaven gave a good account in their first league game of the season against Oldham a few weeks ago, so I'm sure they will be coming to the Keepmoat Stadium confident of taking home the two points.

"We have highlighted a few areas where we need to improve from the first two competitive games, I want to see us be better defensively, especially in the ruck and with our marker system."

Tickets are available for the game against Whitehaven from the Club Doncaster Box Office, on 01302 762576 or at
