Carl Hall has admitted that he is out of his comfort zone in the Doncaster dugout.

Former boss Tony Miller answered an SOS to help Dons’ chief executive run team affairs at last weekend’s Summer Bash, which heralded a 14th straight league defeat to Hunslet Hawks.

The duo are expected to remain in charge for this Sunday’s trip to Dewsbury Rams following Paul Cooke’s exit last week.

But Hall confesses that the situation is far from ideal and the club will this week review applications for the vacant head coach position.

“I don’t fancy myself as a head coach, the sooner we find someone the better,” Hall told Doncaster’s official website.

“We’ll have a look at the applications this week.

“We don’t want to rush but I’d like someone very soon.”

Despite suffering a 25-12 defeat to the Hawks, Hall praised the Dons squad’s attitude following a difficult week.

“Of course the players are hurting after this week but if they go and play how they did [on Sunday] then they deserve something and hopefully it’s not too far away,” said Hall.

“The Donny people love it if you have a go and they did so we can’t ask for any more than that.

“I thanked the players for their efforts.

“They gave everything they had but we were just dumb in a few areas.”
