Tyson: Take No Prisoners

13 November 2015

Experienced striker looking to outshine Tangerines upon return with Rovers.

Nathan Tyson will put his feelings on the backburner when he and his Doncaster teammates head to Blackpool on Saturday.

Tyson, aged 33, signed for the Tangerines in the summer of 2013 from Derby County but only made ten appearances at Bloomfield Road, all of which came from the substitutes bench.

“I didn’t really get much of a chance, I didn’t even start a game for them to be honest,” said Tyson.

“I’m looking forward to going back there though.

“I did meet some really nice people in terms of fans and I know how passionate they are about their football club but we’ve got to go there on Saturday and do a job on them as there are no prisoners in this game.

“We’ve got to go and get three points – especially away from home – considering the last two away games and we need something to build on now.”

Tyson – top scorer last season – only has eyes for Rovers now and cited the influence of Darren Ferguson in trying to resurrect this season’s League One campaign.

“I think it’s about routine,” he said.

“We’re getting in to the routine of how the gaffer wants things to be done and everyone’s taken that on board and everyone is positive about that.

“Now he’s here, it’s about trying to install what he wants on us quickly and as efficiently as possible.

“I think we need to take one step at a time and be real to where we are in the league at the moment. We need to build up some momentum and stay unbeaten for as long as we can.

“If we can do that until, say, Christmas then that’s a good target to aim for but we can talk about that (play-offs) until we’re out of this sticky situation.”
