DONCASTER kept their titles hopes alive with a dominant performance at Oldham - as a defeat for Barrow at Workington blew the race for the league championship wide open.

Lee Waterman moved to within one try of the club record number of tries in a season with a first half brace, while Chris Spurr and Mike Kelly (2) also touched down to give the Dons a 28-6 half time lead.

Craig Fawcett and Mark Castle went over after the break, while Paul Cooke kicked seven out of eight conversions as Tony Miller’s side bounced back from last week’s defeat at Whitehaven in style.

Victory moved Doncaster to within one point of leaders Barrow with two games to play.

But third placed Workington, who beat Barrow 48-34 on Sunday, will win the title if they win their three remaining games.

The Dons host North Wales Crusaders in their final home game before the play-offs this Sunday (3pm).
