Full back full of confidence ahead of PNE trip after notching first Rovers goal.Enda Stevens has said that he and his Doncaster Rovers teammates are a match for anyone in League One ahead of Tuesday’s trip to promotion contenders Preston North End at Deepdale.
The Lilywhites are on a hot run of form at the moment and have strengthened their squad significantly, but the full back remained calm.
“We went in to the [Colchester] game on the back of two defeats knowing that we had to put things right, get back to form and keep pushing for the play offs and we put in a solid performance,” he said.
“We’re always confident that we can get back in to games. Our home form has been good of late, and when he missed it, we knew we had to get the goals.
“They’re on a good run but we’ll go there positively and focus on ourselves. We prepare right and our mind will be set on the game.”
Villa loanee Stevens is all but resigned to the fact that he has little or no future with his parent club once his contract expires in the summer.
After scoring his first Doncaster goal in the 2-0 win over Colchester at the weekend, the 24 year old affirmed that he has settled well in to life at Keepmoat Stadium.
“From the very start, I felt at home here and I know and like the lads and the coaching staff and there’s a great buzz around the place,” he said.
“I think, looking at us, we’re as good as anyone on our day. Looking at ourselves, I think we have a tough round of fixtures this month but hope that something will look clearer by the end of it.
“It was good to get a goal; the manager’s told me to start shooting more and thankfully that one went in!
“I’m just focussing on game by game and doing as well as I can for the team.”
