Keegan: Keep the Faith

24 October 2014

Midfield enforcer wants Rovers to rediscover their roar.

Paul Keegan has said that the players want to give the Rovers fans something to shout about when Milton Keynes Dons come to town on Saturday.

The Irishman was omitted from Tuesday night’s defeat against Leyton Orient where just over 5,000 spectators attended the game.

“The fans are such a factor in how we do, especially when things aren't going your way. If you know the supporters are behind you and backing you, it gives us as players confidence,” said the 30 year old.

“We have a young squad and it’s easy for the youngsters to lose their confidence but with the fans backing that’s less likely to happen.

“Our fans have been fantastic, home and away. As long as they are there and creating an atmosphere, that’s all I want as a player.

"The more fans the better, hopefully Saturday will be a great game with lots of support for the boys and we can get a good result."

The midfielder has featured heavily for Paul Dickov’s side this season and says he has noticed an “upping of the ante” in training.

“Training has been lively this week, everybody was on it. I think the lads worked really hard on Tuesday we just didn’t get what we deserved. It was a better performance than last weekend and the work rate was good,” he said.

“Everyone is looking forward to Saturday and really wants to get a result.

“A result on Saturday would lift the lads. There’s plenty of games we’ve played where we’ve worked hard and haven’t got a result, but there’s also games where we haven’t done enough to get a result.”
