Ferguson Post-Colchester

2 November 2015

Gaffer says Saturday was just the start for Rovers.

Darren Ferguson promised that there is “more to come” from his Doncaster Rovers side in the aftermath of Saturday’s 2-0 win over Colchester.

Debutant Conor Grant scored on the stroke of half time before Andy Williams wrapped up Doncaster’s fourth win of the season midway through the second half.

“The goal helped us settle down,” began Ferguson.

“There looked to be a bit of nerves from the players and the passing was a bit erratic but the first is a quality goal from Conor – in fact both goals were quality – and the clean sheet is a bonus.

“There’s loads left in the tank with these players and plenty to work in.

“The players dug in and we've got the right result, particularly off the back of two defeats and that’s what we got.”

Rovers recorded their first clean sheet since early September to move up to 18th in League One and Ferguson emphasised the need for his players to relax.

“At 2-0, Stucky (goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann) has made a great save which was as important as the goals we scored. The clean sheet is a big bonus and I was pleased with that,” he said.

“There’s still a lot of work to be done. I know we can be better. It wasn’t a lucky win or anything like that, we did deserve it.

“Maybe it’s a belief thing, we were a bit nervous but once we got composure in then we looked like a better team.

“I can take the responsibility off them and let them play. They don’t have to worry any more, they just need to relax.”
