Alcock: Keep it going

30 November 2015

Defender stresses importance of extending mini-run under Darren Ferguson for as long as possible.

Craig Alcock praised Doncaster’s efforts after matching league leaders Coventry City at the weekend.

The Sheffield United loanee has been a virtual ever present under Darren Ferguson since arriving from Bramall Lane just three weeks ago.

“It’s just about putting results together but since I’ve come in I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it,” said Alcock.

“The lads have been positive and they’re all buying in to what the gaffer wants to achieve so hopefully we’re going in the right direction.

“I thought we came with a gameplay which we executed really well. Things just didn’t quite drop for us but on the whole it was a good performance in light of the conditions.”

Rovers have lost just once in their last six games in all competitions and, after propelling themselves away from the drop zone in the league, will turn their attentions to the FA Cup on Sunday.

“No matter what game it is, it’s important that we keep this mini-run going and we try and build on it and gain confidence and use this as a springboard for the league,” said Alcock.

“It (the loan experience) has been brilliant for me, its been fantastic. The lads have been different class, the fans have been brilliant and hopefully that can coincide with getting a few positive results – the Rochdale game becomes a bit more of a disappointment – but the draw is something we can build on.

“There’s some very, very good players here and its just about getting the belief out of them and getting them to perform week in week out and hopefully the positive attitude that the gaffer’s brought in will be transferred on to the pitch.”
