Tyson Back Smiling

22 August 2014

Goal hero describes relief at getting off the mark.

Rovers striker Nathan Tyson has revealed that he had fallen out of love before joining the Club in the summer.

The former Nottingham Forest and Derby County man arrived at the Keepmoat Stadium on an initial one year deal and bagged his first goal in a Rovers shirt with a dramatic injury time leveller against Preston North End on Tuesday.

“I’m taking everything in my stride and just enjoying football, the past few seasons I haven’t enjoyed my football; I didn’t want to play it and I didn’t want to watch or talk about it,” said the 32 year old.

“I’ve got a smile on my face now though and I enjoyed pre season and at the moment I enjoy coming in to do my job and Doncaster’s perfect for me.”

Tyson, a second half substitute, came off the bench to earn Rovers their first home point of the season.

“There was a lot of frustration taken out on that so it’s a massive relief,” he said.

“If we’re all firing and all doing our jobs then we can find ourselves in a very comfortable position.

“We’re all good teammates, the dressing room is fantastic to be fair, everyone gets along with each other so it’s a healthy competition and I think whoever steps in to the next game, everyone is there supporting each other because we want the best for the team.”
