Gaffer aiming to amend attacking woes on home turf.Paul Dickov is sweating on the fitness of hitman Nathan Tyson as Rovers look to end their goal drought at home.
Jamie McCombe’s 50th minute strike in the 3-2 win over Chesterfield in September was the last time Dickov’s men scored at Keepmoat Stadium.
“Nathan (Tyson) has an outside chance of featuring on Saturday. He’s done some work with the physio and the fitness coach and he wants to be involved but we’ll have to wait and see,” Dickov said.
“He will see that Theo Robinson has come in and done a job so he’ll be chomping at the bit to get back in the side.
“He’s been fantastic for us since coming in so if he’s available its great news but if not, he’ll definitely be available next week.
“Lack of goals have been an issue here at the Keepmoat, and there’s no getting away from it but Saturday is a game we really want to win. We know the form at home has to pick up and we need to bring our away form to the Keepmoat and start picking up points here.”
Dickov has said that he wants his side to put on a show for the Keepmoat faithful, going in to Christmas, but will take a win however it comes, just like the recent FA Cup win over Oldham.
“We need to play the football we know we can in front of our home fans,” he said.
“Our fans have been fantastic and I know they want a performance, as do we so on Saturday we’ll come out all guns blazing and give them something to celebrate.”
