The Cornish Pirates look for their second win of the season, as they make the trip to Doncaster on Saturday.

Our guys beat Moseley at home last week, but the Knights are five places above us in the Championship.

Director of rugby Ian Davies said: "We've got to build on last week. One win certainly doesn't make our season but we've just got to keep improving the performances as we have been week on week."

Saturday's encounter at Castle Park (ko 2.30pm) will be the last league game for the Pirates until they play Nottingham at home on the 9th November, as three scheduled fixtures that follow this coming weekend will all be in the Cup.

Ian Davies added: "Playing Doncaster away is never an easy place to go and they are presently flying high on making a prompt return to the Championship. Their supporters with also be cock-a-hoop with the win away to Yorkshire Carnegie.

"It is important that we take the confidence gained from our win against Moseley and our aim is to take the points again this weekend.

"The line-up should also be much of a muchness as we strive to look for continuity."

There is only one change in the starting line-up from the side that ran out against Moseley. Joe Atkinson, who performed well against 'Mose', drops to the bench, enabling a fit again Alex Cheesman to wear the number '7' shirt.

Player/coach Gavin Cattle is listed among the replacements, as is Laurence May who will be keen to make his first Championship appearance for the club.

The full selection is as follows:

Cornish Pirates:

15 Matt Evans, 14 Kieran Goss, 13 Tom Riley, 12 Tom Hendrickson, 11 Kyle Moyle, 10 Kieran Hallett, 9 Tom Kessell; 1 Jack Andrew, 2 Aaron Carpenter, 3 Alan Paver, 4 Will Carrick Smith, 5 Darren Barry, 6 Chris Morgan (capt), 7 Alex Cheesman, 8 Laurie McGlone.
Replacements:

16 Jamal Ford-Robinson, 17 Tom Channon, 18 Tyler Gendall, 19 Will Graulich, 20 Joe Atkinson, 21 Gavin Cattle, 22 Laurence May.
 
In National League Two, Redruth travel to Old Elthamians and Launceston welcome Henley.
