Rovers official website met up with former Middlesbrough keeper Ross Turnbull ahead of the game at the Riverside in front of Sky cameras.

Ross how do you feel we have done so far?

"I think we have done alright although I feel we could have done better on some of the games. I think we have started well and we I know will get better the more we play as the season progresses."

How have you seen your performances?

"We all want to play week in and week out which is what we train for and its great that this season I have been able to do that here. I have been pleased with my performances and think I have improved as I get more matches in. It’s credit to the staff here and the lads because you can’t do it alone, as it’s a team game."

You started your career at Middlesbrough

"I spent some fantastic years there and it’s where I grew up and learnt the game. It’s going to be an occasion, so I am really looking forward to it as I have some great memories. I actually trained in the summer with them and played 45 mins in a pre-season game but I don’t think I was close to signing a contract. I was training with them when Doncaster came in and gave me the chance to play, so it was a no brainer really and I signed up. I was surprised when they parted company with Tony (Mowbray) as he is a legend up there but the results have not gone their way, so they thought they needed a change."

What sort of test you expecting?

"It will be a big test with a change of manager and the fans behind them especially with a big crowd because of the ‘Pride of Teeside’ event. They are a good team and their position is probably a false one. Some of their lads have told me they have played well but not got the results."
