Match Preview


Miller confident of Doncaster's survival

Doncaster coach Tony Miller will check on Grant Edwards (concussion) and Craig Robinson (calf) before finalising his team for the club's return to the Championship.

Miller believes the key to Doncaster's chances this year will be their form at the Keepmoat Stadium.

He said: "We'll target out home games and then try and pick up as many wins and bonus points away from home as possible.

"We know it's going to be tough, but I think we'll be OK."

New Doncaster Rams coach Glenn Morrison insists his side will be entertainers in 2013.

The former Bradford, Wakefield and Parramatta star has spent the off-season encouraging his squad to have belief in their attacking ability.

He said: "Defence is a major part of winning any game, and we've worked on our defensive structures, but I also want the guys to play what they see and entertain the crowd.

"The fans want to see tries scored, and we'll be throwing the ball around when we get the chance."

Only Austin Buchanan (knee) and Ben Jones (groin) are missing from Dewsbury's squad, forcing Morrison into some difficult early decisions.

"Unfortunately some blokes will have to miss out. They've all done well in pre-season, but we can only pick 17 come Sunday.

"Doncaster will be very tough, but we want to try to come out of the blocks and put in a good performance ourselves. It should be a good one for the fans to come and watch."
