Last week we travelled to Keighley and got a good kick up the backside going down 36-6.

It may have been the wakeup call we needed. Hopefully we’ll learn from this and quickly.

We have a bunch of so called Don’s supporters (they and I know who I’m talking about) who seem to get a kick out of knocking the boys after results like this.

But let me go on record and say I am proud of my players. No matter what happens from here on in this bunch of lads have done myself and the true loyal supporters proud for most of the season.

We still have it all to play for with three games, left two of which are at home against really tough opposition in Whitehaven and Workington.

We are all vying for a top four finish so it’s not all over yet. If anyone was in the changing room after the game at Keighley they would have seen how down the boys were.

I told them to not to feel sorry for themselves and to put things right when we play Whitehaven.

We are all in this together and sometimes things happen that you don’t see coming, but it is how you bounce back that matters most”.

At the Whitehaven game we will be helping to raise some funds for former boxer Jason Rushton.

We will be donating £2 from every paying adult to his fund after he lost part of his sight in his last fight.

Jason is an inspirational kid who is having it a bit tough at the minute, but he is a true fighter and is determined to get over this set back and will tell anyone this is one fight he is determined to win.

Don’t forget the Challenge Cup final at Wembley.

We are running a bus from the Keepmoat Stadium at only £60 which includes a £41 ticket.

We have a few places left so if you are interested in experiencing the Wembley final atmosphere contact the club on 01302765 888.

Come on you Dons.
