DONCASTER boss Tony Miller could be without two key members of his squad for the remainder of the club’s Championship One campaign.

Powerhouse prop Jamie Bovill suffered a groin injury in Sunday’s 34-6 defeat at Keighley.

“We don’t know whether it’s a groin or a hernia problem at the moment but in either case Jamie could be out for the season,” said Miller.

On-loan winger Gareth Potts will also miss the crucial home game against Whitehaven on Sunday week.

“Gareth has a suspected broken scaifoid and his hand is in pot for another week,” said Miller. “Apparently he did it early in Sunday’s game. He didn’t say anything to me about it but he had a word with the physio at half-time.”

Forward Mike Emmett received a bruised chest-bone at Cougar Park and was only able to do some light training. He too could be a doubt for the Whitehaven game.

Winger Dean Colton resumed training this week after a month on the sidelines with a groin injury but could face a race against time to be fit to face the Cumbrians.

The Dons, who are without a game this weekend, expect to have Hull FC’s dual-registered back-rower Chris Green available for the Whitehaven game.

Green has proved his fitness playing for Hull’s Under-20 team following a torn stomach muscle.
