DONS’ boss Tony Miller is looking for side to kick on in the second half of the season after seeing his side mark the midway stage of their Championship One season with a crushing 30-0 home win over Oldham at the weekend.
“I’m reasonably happy with the first half of the season,“ said Miller. “Apart from the game at Oldham I think that our form has been pretty consistent.”
With bottom club Gateshead to be faced over the next month, as well as a home game against fellow strugglers London Skolars, Miller is looking to see his charges continue their climb up the table.
“There are some periods of the season which, on paper, are easier in than others but we won’t be underestimating anyone,” said Miller. “We have games in hand and if we win them then we won’t be far off the top-four.
Miller, whose side haven’t got a game this weekend, has received a double boost as Hull FC duo Chris Green and Nev Morrison will be available for the next month.
Whilst welcoming their availability, Miller admits that it adds to his selection headache: “The problem is that we don’t have a second team,” he said. “If people aren’t playing it is difficult to keep them happy. Players only get paid if they play and if they are travelling for training three times a week it is costing them because fuel isn’t cheap these days.
“There is also the problem of trying to keep their match fitness up, so we’ll be looking to rotate the squad.”
