Richard Horne was proud of his players efforts in the 22-20 victory over Hunslet in Betfred League One.

The Dons came from eight points down to earn their fourth win in a row in all competitions, and Horne says their commitment was second to none.

He said: “I spoke to the boys afterwards and we were at 10 out of 10 in terms of effort and turning up for each other.

“We weren’t great with the ball but some defensive efforts forced errors and we picked up the loose ball and took advantage a couple of times.

“Both teams looked nervous and that is the stage of the season we’re at, the most important thing was just to get the win.”

The win at the South Leeds Stadium moved the Dons to within two points of second-placed Hunslet, and Horne says they are building each week.

He added: “We’re right back up there now and have something to chase, which is what we’ve been looking for.

“We’ve shown over the past couple of weeks that when we get things right we are more than a match for the teams around us.”
