Match Preview


Higgins misses out for Eagles

Liam Higgins is Sheffield Eagles' only absentee ahead of a South Yorkshire derby clash in the Kingstone Press Championship.

Severe weather continues to put Friday's game in doubt, but Eagles coach Mark Aston is hopeful the game will go ahead and insists everything will be done to play the match.

Aston said: "The last thing we need is a fixture pile-up, and by Friday it will be two weeks since we last played."

Promoted Doncaster have secured two wins from their first seven games in the league. They are currently ninth in the table.

However, Dons coach Tony Miller must cope without Matt Carbutt (medial ligaments), Carl Hughes (pectoral) and Liam Cunningham (shoulder) for Friday's derby.

But Adam Scott could feature after joining the club for a third time following his recent release from Batley, while loan signing Ben Blackmore could also be involved.
