NEWS | Beharrell: victory deserved

Matty Beharrell felt the Dons’ victory over London Skolars was a deserved one as they secured their play-off spot.

Beharrell kicked a late drop-goal to seal the 23-22 win at the Keepmoat Stadium, and says he needed to stay calm in the heat of the moment.

He said: “I had a practice go against Newcastle and learnt from that, I was practicing a lot during the week in training.

“I got a bit of stick off the lads for not getting many through the posts so I was delighted to see that one go over to get us the win.”

With three games of the regular season remaining, Beharrell believes they can take confidence from the way they played in stages of the 80 minutes.

He added: “We knew it was a big game and we’ve spoken about getting a few wins towards the end of the season so that we can take momentum into the play-offs.

“For the first 20 minutes we were very good, we let them back into it after that but managed to grind the win out.”
