Richard Horne wants his players to try and make a statement in the game against West Wales Raiders this weekend.

The Dons are looking to get back to winning ways after defeat at York last time out, and the head coach feels the game is a great opportunity to do just that.

He said: “We’re using this as a chance to build some confidence ahead of the Hunslet game, we need to tidy up a few areas with the ball in hand.

“The York game was a hard one to review as we did a lot of scrambling, we worked hard so there are just minor things to improve.

“If the boys play with that sort of desire and attitude then we’ll be where we want to be at the end of the year, it’s just about finding consistency.”

With games coming up against play-off contenders Hunslet and Oldham at the end of July, Horne wants his players to put themselves in the frame for those encounters.

He added: “It’s hard to prepare for these games because you probably start with how you want to play and then once the gaps appear, it’s easy to be tempted to throw the ball about.

“Hopefully we can control that and make sure we put in a solid performance for the full 80 minutes and get the job done.

“It’s always good for players to score and we’ll be using the game to have a look at the squad and for different players to play their way into form.”

Tickets for the game against West Wales Raiders are available from the Club Doncaster Box Office, on 01302 762576 or at tickets.clubdoncaster.co.uk
