Ferguson on Chesterfield

18 April 2016

Doncaster Rovers manager Darren Ferguson hopes Saturday's victory against Wigan Athletic can give his side the confidence to do the same on Tuesday evening.

Rovers make the short trip to Chesterfield having ended a winless run stretching back to January.

Ferguson is now hoping his side can reach the levels shown on Saturday to topple the League One leaders at the Proact Stadium.

“You’d like to think the Wigan win has given everyone the belief that we can still get out of the trouble we are in," said Ferguson.

“The performance itself was a very good one and we fully deserved the win.

“I feel the last three performances have been pretty good and we probably should have got more points.

“The message before Wigan was that if we could beat them we can beat anyone.

“The key element to that though is getting the consistency in the performance and I’m trying to tell the players not to worry so much about the results, but about getting the perfomance and you hope that will end up getting you the results.

"Everyone in the squad is going to be crucial if we are go get over the line, it is still going to be a hard task though and I still think we are going to win our last four games.

"We just need to keep going and hope one or two in-front of us get a bit nervous.

"If we can win on Tuesday it will bring us to within five points of Chesterfield and drag them into it too.

"I think it is good that we have a game on a Tuesday, I think the players are ready to go again.

"We have to make sure that Saturday wasn't a waste of time by beating Wigan and then not getting the result at Chesterfield.

"You only get three points for beating Wigan, that is really important and it was stressed to the players straight after the whistle in the changing rooms on Saturday."
