PD: "We can compete in this league"

Doncaster manager Paul Dickov spoke to the media after a late Queens Park Rangers goal denied Rovers a deserved point.

Paul said: "We are all devastated! We came down here and put in a fantastic performance from start to finish. We lost the game two-one, never mind getting a point out of the game we were unlucky not to get all three. 

"We maybe have to be more clinical with some of the chances but some of the football we played was top class. When we didn't have the ball we showed the desire to press to win the ball back in dangerous areas. I've got to give the players a lot of credit, we are all a little down at the minute but we can take massive positives out of the performance. 

"In the 92nd minute we have a free kick in the corner and maybe we have shown a bit of naivety, a lot of positivity by the players trying to get the winner but sometimes away from home against the best team in the league, maybe we should have got two on the ball and just seen a bit more of the game out. Instead we have put the ball in the box trying to get the winner, they have broke and scored but we will have to learn from that. 

"Paul Quinn was fantastic again today but I think the two nineteen year olds deserve a big pat on the back up against some class players. 

"It's hard to take positives because we are all down beat about the result but when we get it right we can really compete in this league."
