Tony Miller insists he will banish any air of complacency from his Dons side.

Miller watched in dismay last Sunday as the Dons suffered a surprisingly heavy 42-10 defeat at York City Knights – a side they had beaten just a few weeks prior in the Northern Rail Cup.

And he has pledged to push his side back on track in time for tomorrow’s tough as teak visit to Featherstone Rovers – insisting the squad is not good enough to be complacent.

“I was more disappointed with the manner of the defeat at York,” Miller said.

“We were poor in defence and the players just weren’t enthusiastic enough which is a big part of our game.

“Maybe a few of them have become complacent, after we beat York last month. Who knows?

“But we can’t afford to become complacent – we’re not good enough to be complacent.

“It’s something I’ll be working on.”

The Dons head to the Big Fellas Stadium sitting 11th in the Championship but only two points shy of a top eight place.

Miller knows his side are in for a tough time in West Yorkshire.

He said: “They don’t get much tougher than Featherstone at Featherstone.

“But we have to go there and give a good account of ourselves.

“We have some good players and they are keen to test themselves against the best.

“In this division they don’t come any better than Featherstone.”

Miller is hoping Grant Edwards will be available after struggling with a neck problem.
