Ferguson post-Cov

25 April 2016

Gaffer hails dominant Doncaster display.

Darren Ferguson described his side's 2-0 win over Coventry City at the weekend as “dominant.”

Ferguson watched on as loanee Tommy Rowe and striker Andy Williams both notched first half headers to give Rovers a chance of survival as the League One season nears its conclusion.

“(It was) impressive; dominant,” asserted the Scot.

“We felt that they’d play the three at the back as they did on Tuesday but they didn’t. However, tactically our players got it perfect, they listened, and they pressed them all over the pitch.

“We were a little bit disappointed it wasn’t more than that. We’ve said to the players to maintain that level of performance and it gives us a chance.”

With only 180 minutes of the season remaining, Rovers now head to already relegated Crewe on Saturday, looking to take the season to the final game.

“We have to maintain it. If we perform like that then I’m confident we can get to 51 (points) and then you need a little bit of luck,” he said.

“All I said to the players was get it to the Crewe game and now all I’ll say is take it to the last game. We’ve got that mentality where you need to win the game and that stands us in good stead.

“We go to Crewe and we have to win that while Fleetwood don’t play until Monday so that will make it nervy for them.

“We can catch four teams so that’s okay but we’ve just got to do our own job. The players are believing in what we’re doing, playing well and enjoying it.

“We don’t want it to be a case of too little too late, six points is what we need and we hope then that we get a little bit of luck that we’ve not had.”
