Tyson Pulling No Punches

Rovers fear no one, according to seasoned striker as campaign hots up.

Nathan Tyson says he is hoping to spearhead Doncaster's campaign for the League One play-off places.

The striker will be pushing for a starting berth against former club Notts County, whom he once had a short loan spell with.

“Yes it’s the business part of the season. We need to get ourselves in there and reassess what we need to do,” said the 32 year old.

“As much as getting in there, the hardest thing is staying in there and we've got some tough games coming up but they're winnable and in this league apart from one or two, there's not that much out there where we think we're going to struggle in.

“It’s not going to be easy for Notts County to get anything out of the game and it’s important for us to get back to back wins.”

Rovers defeated local rivals Barnsley at the weekend and know a win would elevate them in to the top six for the first time since the opening day of the season.

“We're keeping our feet on the ground and not get carried away with a few results,” said Tyson.

“You need time to bond and gel with the existing players so me being a new player, it was a case of finding somewhere to settle in and getting to know people on and off the pitch and its going very, very well.

“The group of players are like minded and want the same things out of the season.

“It’s very easy to get along with the gaffer, as it is the rest of the staff.”

Tyson finished off by saying the novelty of being looked up to by younger members of the first team squad, still hadn’t worn off.

“It’s the first time in my career that the young lads look up to me and come up to me to ask for my advice.

“It is nice and it's refreshing as well because it puts me in a different phase of my career and to have people ask me for stuff is great.”
