Lots to Play For - Bennett

Winger wise at sharp end of the season.

Kyle Bennett has said that he and his Doncaster Rovers teammates are inching their way towards the League One play-off places.

Rovers drew with fellow top six contenders Notts County, on Tuesday, and the winger was unfazed by the missed opportunity to breach the top six.

“[Psychologically] you want to be up there but it’s where you are at the end of the season, not now,” he said.

“There’s around twenty games to go and a lot of football to be played and a lot of points to be picked up.

“The effort is there and everyone is trying and pulling their weight.”

Bennett was one of three ‘attacking-minded’ midfielders used against the Magpies, but couldn’t help break the stubborn resistance of County and their ‘keeper Roy Carroll.

“It was frustrating and it’s just about converting our chances in to goals. We’re playing well as a team and didn’t look like conceding, but we'll go again next week at Chesterfield,” Bennett said.

“Fans have got to stick by us because we're doing our best. We’re not short of chances and we're creating throughout games.

“We've become a bit more consistent over the last few weeks. We’ve got one loss in eight which is a good platform to start from. We’re picking up some points now - only two points off the play-offs - and still within touching distance.”
