RECHARGED and refreshed, Keighley Cougars are ready to resume their quest to make a further dent in their points deduction.

After a frenetic start to the season, Craig Lingard's men enjoyed a blank weekend after they were knocked out of the Coral Challenge Cup in the previous round. But they are back in Betfred League One action tomorrow when they host Doncaster at Cougar Park (kick-off 3pm).

Cougars are in a rich vain of form, and are unbeaten in their last four games, winning three and drawing one, which has seen their -12-point pre-season punishment for change of ownership reduced to -5.

Doncaster are sixth in the table on six points after three wins in their opening five games of the season. They also caused an upset in the Coral Challenge cup fifth round, as they beat Championship side Batley Bulldogs 16-12 last Sunday.

Lingard hopes the break has not derailed their good form and they can pick up where they left off in their Good Friday clash.

He said: "Doncaster's win over a defensively-sound Batley in the cup raises a few eyebrows.

"There are pros and cons for us to have had a free weekend. It gives players who are injured an extra chance to recover, but it breaks the momentum we had before the break. We want to keep playing.

"Doncaster have a short turnaround. You would expect Doncaster to come out as favourites, with where they have started and where we are. But in the form guide we are third in the table after we have taken seven of the last eight points available.

"We have not really played any established teams yet. We have a really tough six games next against teams like Doncaster, Hunslet, Oldham and Workington Town."

Matt Nicholson and Lewis Wray will sit out tomorrow's clash as they both wait to see a specialist after they suffered a concussion last month, each their second within the last 12 months. But Jamie Thackray and James Feather are both available.

Lingard is still waiting on making a further loan move for Harvey Hallas.

Cougars' clash at North Wales Crusaders on Sunday, June 30 at the Queensway Stadium will now kick-off at the earlier time of 2.30pm. Second rower Josh Lynam's testimonial year will begin on Sunday, June 2.

Meanwhile, Cougars have launched a scheme to further tap into its heritage.

Every player to have ever played competitively for Keighley RL will be given a heritage number. Others will be announced over the coming months.

The scheme has kicked off with heritage numbers for the 2019 Cougars squad.
