Doncaster RLFC make their final trip of the season to Cumbria as they head to Barrow Raiders on Sunday.

The Dons have had mixed fortunes in the North West this campaign, back in February in the clubs first game of the season, Doncaster recorded a convincing 12-22 victory over Workington Town.

However on their last trip to Cumbria, just one month ago, the Dons were on the end of a 29-20 defeat and Paul Cooke’s men will be hoping for a different outcome against Barrow.

Doncaster entertained Barrow at the Keepmoat Stadium at the beginning of May, which proved to be a thrilling encounter.  Dave Scott scored a last gasp 77th minute try to level the tie and Stewart Sanderson converted to give the Dons a 30-28 win.

The Dons head to Barrow on the back of successive victories against Rochdale Hornets and Swinton Lions, flying high in third position in the Kingstone Press Championship.

Steve Snitch who was a late withdrawal in last week’s win at Leigh Sports Village will be fit, however Mark Castle and Shaun Leaf are doubtful.

Barrow last week ended a two match losing streak with an impressive 38-18 victory over Rochdale Hornets.

Bobbie Goulding made his first appearance in nine years and played an influential role before being withdrawn after 50 minutes with a knock and could miss out on Sunday’s match. 

The Raiders are battling for every point, they are seven points adrift of ninth placed Batley Bulldogs in the race to qualify for next season’ Super League second tier.
