Syers Looking For Positive Results

24 August 2012

Rovers midfielder David Syers has hit the deck running since his summer move from Bradford City.

The midfielder has seen consistent progression in his career during the past few seasons and is looking to carry that on with Doncaster Rovers.


After a perfect start to the season, Syers is looking to build on the good form going into Saturday’s game against Crawley Town.


‘We were always trying to aim for positive results out of these games,’ he said


‘To get the two wins out of two is a great start; but that’s all it is, a start; it gives us something to build on.


‘Winning is a habit, it’s something that you go into every game hoping to achieve.


‘We’ve played two different sorts of games, home and away, and we’ve come out with the three points in both.


‘We went into the Walsall game with a game plan and scored at the right times. On Tuesday we had the set back of conceding early, but then to get back on top and grind out a result like that was every bit as satisfying as the games where you win 3-0.’


Syers, who has been described by manager Dean Saunders as a goal scoring midfielder, spoke about his desire to influence the team in an attacking sense.


‘As long as I’m getting the chances I know that I’ll score goals.


‘At the moment we’ve won two out of two and we’re scoring goals, I’ll save my goals until some of the lads goals dry up; we don’t all want to be scoring all at once.


‘It’s great to be having an influence directly on goals, it’s something I always want to be doing, I want to be able to have an influence on the final third whether it be scoring or making chances.’


Looking ahead to tomorrow afternoon’s game, David has issued a stark warning against underestimating a team like Crawley Town.


‘Crawley are a very tough team to play against,’ he said


‘It’s been widely known about the amount of money they have spent. The last manager put a decent team together and they had a way of playing that wasn’t the prettiest to watch but it was what was needed to get out of League Two.


‘Without a doubt they have got some great players in their team and they’re a club not to be underestimated.


‘It’s going to be tough task but a chance to get another three points.’
