Tony Miller wants to erase the memory of his lowest point at the club when the Dons hit the Challenge Cup trail this weekend.

Doncaster welcome St Helens based amateurs Thatto Heath Crusaders to the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday (3pm) hoping to avoid a repeat of last season’s embarrassing cup exit.

The Dons were humiliated at the third round stage by Conference side Siddal who came to the Keepmoat and ran out easy 26-0 winners.

It’s a day Miller is keen to forget - and one he is confident will not be repeated this time around.
