Tough game on Sunday. They're probably the form team in the division at the moment. What can we expect? Just hope Rocket Ronnie isn't reffing like he usually does when we play Donny. Good venue for a few pre-match beers though!

We at the very least need a bonus point Steve. Agreed about the referee and we can add Hewer to that list.

Tough game.  Lets hope its not a match decided by a referee

The chances are Keighley are now safe. A bigger question would be, who would we want to get the 3 points at weekend, Hunslet or York?

Hunslet have to play Fev and Sheffield after that, York have got some fairly tough games as well! Donny away etc. (Having not won away from home all season)

A win for Hunslet would put them above us if we were to lose at weekend, but would it be better for us in the long run? We all know Barrow is the must win game, but if we can pick up a cheeky win at Donny I'd feel much better about the situation!

Guys no Gareth or Ronnie on Sunday the referee is Dave Sharp.

 

Lets get behind the boys.

 

Keighley fought back from 19-6 down with 10 mins left last night at Town to lose 25-18 but centres Haley & Lawton both ended up in hospital after being injured during the game.

I prefer to look at the possibility of us staying in this league on our own merits at the moment.

3 wins should do it!

I'm taking three over and have room for one more ( two at a squeeze) in the car if anyone fancies it.

No doubt this will be a very tough one and David Mills size and presence could be a big miss against a strong pack of forwards like Doncaster's.  If the good run of form continues I hope we will witness the team gain at least a bonus point and perhaps an extra special showing could bring home all three. Hope springs eternal!

Won't be easy, but we're a better side than when they beat us in the cup match, so there's no reason why we can't come away from the Keepmoat with smiles on our faces!

COME ON YOU LIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3 from our house will be making the trip. Bonus point required but there's no reason why we can't win, we've beaten them once already this year and we're in great form.

Bonus point minimum requirement tomorrow - but no matter what happens with all the results tomorrow nothing will be decided,  the fight goes on.

Without boring you with too many ifs and buts but if results go the way I assume (or in our case hope) this will be the final standing

Keighley 26 34 Barrow 26 34 Swinton 26 32 York 26 30 Hunslet 26 29

but who am I to make predictions with the way results have gone in the past few weeks

It was hard luck as a Donny fan I have to say Swinton were the better side in the 2nd half.

 

The Dons nicked it very late on , but I suppose its an 80 minute game.

That was a heartbreaker.  After a first half with Doncaster well on top and us defending reasonablywell but showing nothing on attack I feared we wouldn't get a bonus point.  The turn around in the second half was remarkable and credit to the team for putting on a tremendous fight back and putting us in a winning position.  Credit also to Doncaster for finding that last little bit of fuel in the tank and turning the match around again in the last five minutes. Their winning score was very well taken but a bitter pill for us Lions fans.

Gutted ain't the word!

 

The pass for their winning try looked iffy at best, and a Donny fan after the game admitted to me  that "It looked flat."

 

Other results went against us well, and we find ourselves second bottom with just two games left.

 

Barrow on Thursday is bigger than massive!

 

Spelly.
