CHRIS Green’s last minute try capped a sensational Dons comeback and ended the club’s six-game losing streak.

Green went over in the 73rd minute and Aaron Dobek’s conversion reduced the deficit to just two points after Doncaster had earlier trailed 32-16 at Derwent Park.

But Tony Miller’s side have stuck together during their barren Championship One run and they got their reward during a dramatic climax when the Dons capitalised on a Town fumble and sprayed the ball out wide for Green to dive over as the final hooter sounded.

Debutant winger Gareth Potts, signed on a month’s loan from Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, had earlier scored a brace of tries during an even first half.

Stewart Sanderson also touched down for the Dons as the lead changed hands several times with Town 18-16 ahead at the break thanks to scores from Scott Kaighan, Jack Pedley and Jarrad Stack.

Stack and Kaighan each went over again shortly after the restart, while Darren Holt took his goal tally to six, as Workington took control and claimed a 16-point advantage.

But the Dons’ never-say-die attitude came to the fore again.

Jack Ely touched down with 15 minutes remaining and then Sanderson went over four minutes later to give Miller’s men a lifeline - before Green won it for the Dons with his spectacular late show.
