THE Dons host Rochdale Hornets on Sunday hoping to prove that home is where the heart is.

Boss Tony Miller has set his team a target of winning all their home games in this season’s Co-operative Championship One.

They produced a polished display full of heart and endeavour to beat well fancied Workington Town 26-16 at the Keepmoat Stadium at the weekend - a performance Miller described as the best of his reign.

The superb victory - the Dons’ fifth straight win in all competitions - did come at a cost as Aaron Dobek returned from a long lay-off only to limp off with an ankle ligament problem.

Several other key men, including influential half back Scott Spaven and full back Mick Butterfield, also picked up knocks during a bruising battle.

But Miller, whose team sit proudly level on points with early leaders Swinton Lions, was upbeat about the injury situation when he spoke to the Free Press this week.
