PAUL Cooke will not be risked when the Dons step up their pre-season preparations at home to Keighley Cougars tomorrow (3pm) - weather permitting.
Cooke is targeting a return to action against Super League side Wakefield Trinity Wildcats next weekend following his lengthy lay-off with a broken knee cap.
Coach Tony Miller said: “We’re not taking any chances with Paul because of the nature of the injury.
“He’s ready to go now but we won’t be risking him.
“He’s made a really good recovery but he’s a smart kid and knows what is best.”
Dons won 44-16 against Featherstone Rovers U20s last Friday.
Tickets for Sunday are on sale priced £10 adults, £5 concessions and £2 under 16s.
