<p>Doncaster begin a series of four away games in a row in the Kingstone Press Champiosnhip as the pitch renovation at the Keepmoat Stadium takes place.</p>
<p>The Dons begin this Sunday with a trip to face Swinton Lions at Leigh Sports Village, a ground familiar to the Dons, having played Leigh Centurions who ground share with the Lions just three weeks ago at the same venue.</p>
<p>Paul Cooke's men bounced back from successive defeats in the Championship with the clubs biggest league victory of the season, a 40-10 victory over Rochdale Hornets.</p>
<p>Steve Snitch came off the bench to make his debut in the match and could be in contention to start against Swinton, whilst scrum half Richard Wilkinson will be hoping to keep his place in the Dons starting line-up after picking up the man of the match award against Rochdale with a fantastic performance.</p>
<p>Equally winger Tom Hodson who has scored four tries in three matches since returning to the Dons, will be hoping his form and record continues against Swinton.</p>
<p>A Dons victory would keep the club in third place in the Kingstone Press Championship and one step closer to finishing in the top eight.</p>
<p>With only two wins from their first 12 matches, the hosts Swinton have been relying heavily on bonus points, which keeps them just one point above basement team Barrow Raiders.</p>
<p>The Lions are currently on a poor run of form, suffering five defeats on the bounce in the Championship and will be looking to break that run against the Dons.</p>
<p>Their last victory was an impressive 37-31 win against Dewsbury Rams which came back in April, but Swinton have so far failed to build on that win.</p>
<p>Last weekend Swinton went down at home to Batley Bulldogs 18-33 and Paul Cooke will be hoping for a similar result this Sunday.</p>
