Doncaster player coach Paul Cooke spoke to the official website ahead of Sunday’s trip to Featherstone Rovers.

The game promises to be a good spectacle as 2nd play 3rd in the Kingstone Press Championship as the race to finish in the top eight hot’s up.

Rovers head into the game on the back of five straight wins, whilst the Dons come into the match following three successive victories.

The Dons beat Featherstone at the Keepmoat Stadium back in March and Cooke will be hoping for the same outcome this time around.

He said: “Featherstone are a very good rugby league team and well coached in Andy Hay, who I have heard lots about from the players at Hull from his time there.

“I think the amount of money Featherstone are spending make them a target for the majority of other teams to want them to fail and that is just normal human nature. 

“If we win the game we go on level points with them and if we don’t then they put a bit of breathing space between them and us in third place.

“We have a tough challenge, but if we concentrate on ourselves and look after what we can look after we will be in and around the result at the end of the day.

“We need to keep knocking off the wins and performances, we are not where we are in the league by fluke, we are where we are because we are going okay.

“Although we have some tough tests coming up in the next few weeks, we are looking forward to the challenges.”
