Paul Cooke spoke to the official website after seeing his side defeat Rochdale Hornets 22-36 at Leigh Sports Village.

The Dons boss was full of praise for Swinton, but was pleased to break an away run of two consecutive defeats.

He said: “We have not won away from home for quite a while, we have not played really well against Swinton, we have still got a result and that was important to us.

“Away day blues can become a bit of a problem psychologically when you are not winning away from home, the longer it gets.

“I thought Richie Hawkyard was great today and a player I really admire, Swinton have some really tough hard working players that you have to deal with. 

“Swinton really gave it us today, I thought they were very good, they are probably a team who haven’t won enough games to get over the line in tight games such as this one.

“They are falling just short, we studied the game last week and their match against Whitehaven, Swinton are still evolving as a group.

“Swinton do some really good things, we are glad to get this game out of the way and pick up three points.”
