Richard Horne has urged his Dons side to take one game at a time as they prepare to take on York City Knights on Good Friday.

The Dons have won all three of their league games so far in 2018, but the head coach is taking nothing for granted ahead of the Yorkshire derby at the Keepmoat Stadium.

He said: "We will take each game as it comes and look at each team's strength and weaknesses, York are similar to us as they like to move the ball about and it will be a really evenly matched game.

"The Newcastle game was tough physically and I don't think we'll come across many better, York are well drilled and they have some good halves who guide them around the field.

"We are expecting a good crowd for the game, and that will hopefully make the difference as we are all determined to keep our good run going."

The game will see Horne's brother, Graeme, turning out in York colours after signing for the club at the end of 2017, and he believes that will add to the occasion.

He added: "I'm not out there so there isn't as much spice to it, but I know what he's about and what he's like on the field so there is a chance to clue the boys up on that a little bit.

"He's going well for them and he's a big threat, he has got late footwork near the line and can poke his nose through with the strength he has so we will have to watch out for that.

"He's something they've probably lacked in the past couple of years, he's a ball playing middle which means they can go out wide nice and early and cause problems for teams so we'll be ready to deal with that."

Tickets for our clash with York are available from the Club Doncaster Box Office, on 01302 762576 or at

The first 100 children to arrive at the ground will be given free Easter eggs as part of our egg-stravaganza ahead of the game.
