Paul Cooke spoke to the official website following the Dons 22-16 win over Rochdale Hornets on Sunday.
"Obviously it’s been a big week for us. We had a chat about the situation on Saturday morning and it’s done with, there’s nothing we can change as players apart from what we do on the field. We’d spoken all week about the 3 points and how desperately we needed them.
"The match was every bit as tough as we expected, Rochdale aren’t a bad side when you look at personnel they’ve got, they’ve been in some really close games throughout the year and we’re thankful for the three points.
"It was greasy out there, the team that controlled the ball the best was probably going to win the game and play good field position.
"In the first half we were good and full value for the lead we had. Once we took the lead before half time I don’t think we were ever in danger of losing the game until possibly the last play of the game when they sliced through our left edge so we’re pleased with the three points.
"Their tries came from one offload and two kicks which is something we need to address but I thought we handled the conditions and territory really well.
"It’s tough playing a team that’s already relegated, the difficulty is now you play some carefree teams who’ve got nothing to lose and are planning for 2015 in a different division. It’s obviously difficult when we didn’t know some of their personnel from the last few games they’ve had as they’ve changed things around a bit.
It’s a box ticked off for us and we move on with a week off for a big game against Halifax."
