WE entertain Super League opposition Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in the fourth round of the Challenge Cup at the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday. Hopefully there will be a decent crowd.
I know Wakey are selling quite a few tickets for the match as they are starting to get their fans back after their takeover at the start of the season.
The new directors seem to be very good at what they do and they are getting the trust of their supporters back.
The team are also doing well on the field, which also helps, so a big ‘well done’ to them all.
Our boys seem to have lost their way in the last few matches, losing four successive games which has knocked their confidence.
They have a great opportunity this weekend to have a real good go and get some confidence back. I’m sure some of them have aspirations to play Super League and you don’t get the opportunity to play against a top flight side very often. You have to take those chances.
So my advice to them is go out and give it their all. If they perform against a club like Wakefield, whose head coach John Kear likes to give young players a chance, you never know what can happen
To the fans, I would ask they stick with us. Things have been tough the last few games, but like I have always said, we are all in this together.
I can assure you all no one was more disappointed with Sunday’s performance at Oldham than myself.
I have always said I would build a team at Doncaster who would give their all no matter what the result, and I know that is all you ask in return.
That didn’t happen last weekend against Oldham, and myself and head coach Tony Miller will change things if that continues to happen.
