It’s business as usual against Blaydon, insists Doncaster Knights winger Tyson Lewis

Fans’ favourite Tyson Lewis says it is business as usual against Blaydon - and not a case of gunning for revenge against the north east outfit.

Lewis, National One’s leading try scorer with 18 scores to his name, was missing from the Doncaster side that were surprisingly beaten 22-17 on Tyneside in November.

Revenge, Lewis says, is not the order of the day in the return fixture this weekend.

The jet-heeled winger just wants Knights to concentrate on getting the job done, and edging closer to an immediate return to the Championship.

“Against Blaydon we are going to go out planning to win the game, as we do every weekend,” said Lewis.

“It isn’t a case of owing them one or getting even.

“I had to watch that game from the sides but as a team we know we didn’t play our best.

“We lost the game, rather than them having to win it and we’ll be sure not to let that happen again.”

Knights go into Saturday’s match seven points clear at the top of National One with seven games left to play.

Griffiths’ men still need to travel to second placed Rosslyn Park, Esher, Coventry and Blackheath.

Blaydon, Old Albanians and Wharfedale are the three remaining teams still to visit Castle Park, where Doncaster remain unbeaten all season.

“There is no reason, on the face of it, that we can’t win each of the remaining seven games,” said Lewis.

“We definitely have the capabilities to do so.

“We have been solid at home all year and will focus on making sure that continues.

“If we can win our home games and then pick up points on the road it just adds pressure on the chasing pack and takes us closer to gaining promotion.”
