The Dons won’t dwell on their superb comeback win at Workington and already have Keighley in their sights, according to coach Paul Cooke.

Cooke will review Sunday’s 22-12 success with his squad today, but has promised to quickly turn attention to this weekend’s opening home game of the Championship season.

“We are a tight knit group, we will move on to Keighley pretty quickly and forget about this one quite fast,” Cooke told the club’s official website.

“We’re delighted to have gone to such a difficult place as Workington on a heavy pitch and got the win.

“However, a performance as gritty as that is no good if we put a poor one in at the Keepmoat this weekend.

“We will put this to bed pretty quickly, review on Tuesday and move on to Keighley.”

Winger Stu Sanderson scored two tries and kicked three goals at Derwent Park as Doncaster emerged as the only away winners on the opening weekend of the season.

Cooke, however, was keen to share the praise.

He said: “Stewart Sanderson took his two tries really well, but everybody had a decent knock today. There was couple of us not at the races and one or two who were better than they were in pre-season, but it was a real team effort.

“I can’t praise the boys who have come in on dual-registration [from Hull FC] highly enough,” he added.

“Jay Pitts was phenomenal, Joe Rundle showed some class touches and Dean Hadley was defensively fantastic, we spoke about them and thanked them for their efforts.”
