Relegation threatened Doncaster Knights will undergo a trial by television later this month.

Knights’ penultimate home game of the season against Nottingham on Good Friday (March 29) will be screened live on Sky Sports.

The kick-off is now 4.45pm to accommodate the Sky cameras.

Knights’ eight-year stay in the Championship is hanging by a thread after a 25-19 defeat to neighbours Rotherham at Castle Park on Saturday, while relegation rivals Jersey were surprise winners at Plymouth Albion.

Knights are five points adrift at the bottom with just four games left.
