Doncaster Knights: Let’s keep our Castle a fortress, says Griffiths

Clive Griffiths is beaming with pride at the ‘fortress’ status the Knights have secured for Castle Park but has urged his troops to make sure no cracks appear in the last two games.

The Knights have won all 13 of their home ties so far this season and will be confident of finishing with a 100 per cent record on their own turf with Old Albanian and Wharfedale left to visit.

Old Albanian come to town this afternoon, buoyed following four wins from their last five games.

“Every team sets out at the start of the season to win all their home games and we’re making a real good go of it,” Griffiths said. “There’s work to be done if we’re going to achieve it and we can’t take anything for granted.

“We’ve been put behind the black ball a few times at home this season but we’ve always managed to get out of sticky spots.

“We’ll have our resolve tested in these final two home games but it’s massively important that we take maximum points.”

The Knights currently sit eight points clear of second placed Rosslyn Park, who they visit next weekend, and require 18 points to secure promotion and the National One crown.

Griffiths said: “If we can pick up the 10 points at home it’s a major chunk off the requirement.

“So there can be no complacency and we must make sure we take care of business.”
