DONS coach Tony Miller reckons his side will travel to Oldham this Sunday full of confidence despite suffering their third defeat in a row.

Miller’s men earned praise all round for their fitness and fighting spirit after giving top of the table Swinton Lions their toughest test of the season before going down 36-32 at the Keepmoat.

Afterwards Miller said he would back his side against any team if they were still in contention in the closing stages.

Doncaster looked a little intimidated by their unbeaten opponents at the start and quickly found themselves 18-0 down after Swinton had run in three tries in the first 13 minutes.
