DONS’ prop Adam Scott says the South Yorkshire side have a point to prove in Sunday’s Championship One clash against Oldham at the Keepmoat Stadium.
“It was our worst performance of the season when we lost at their place,” said the Doncaster forward. “The pitch was shocking but it was the same for both teams so we can’t use that as an excuse.
“The Oldham game was one of five successive league defeats prior to Sunday’s win at Workington. But the Oldham game apart, we hadn’t been losing games by big margins but equally we hadn’t been playing to our potential.
“We’ve now got back to winning ways with the victory at Workington and we’ve now got to try and build on that and show people that we are a good team.
“Spirits dipped a bit after the Oldham game but prior to the Workington game they had picked up again because we’d given it to Wakefield for an hour or so in the Challenge Cup and we’d given it to Keighley in our previous league match.
“The Keighley defeat was the hardest to take of the season because we had the game won three minutes from time. But as least it gave us the confidence that if we could run the second-placed side close, as we had done against leaders Swinton earlier in the season, that we weren’t far off.
“Not that we’ve had any doubts about our own ability - I think we all know what we are capable of doing to any side in this division. But for whatever reason, injuries and people being unavailable, being just two, we haven’t played to our full potential in a lot of games.
“We set ourselves a target of finishing in the top four and winning the play-offs and that’s still the aim.”
