Gaffer calls for bumper gate at Blades clash.Darren Ferguson has called on the Doncaster public to back his side to victory in an eagerly anticipated South Yorkshire derby against Sheffield United.
Rovers host the Blades on Saturday and Ferguson – recently speaking at the Meet The Owners event – said he hopes for a five figure crowd and that the change in support has been tangible.
“It’s been really noticeable, the atmosphere, both home and away,” he said.
“The obvious one would be the Stoke game; the atmosphere was incredible for that game – absolutely fantastic.
“To get crowds like that, we’ve got the Sheffield United game coming up and we’d like to get 10,000 for that game.”
Rovers have scored an astonishing ten goals in the final 15 minutes of games and Ferguson wants a repeat performance when United make the short trip up the M18.
“The one that sticks out for me was the Gillingham game when we were 2-0 down, you were unbelievable and all the players spoke about it after the game,” he said.
“When we got to 2-1 I don’t think there was any one person in that ground that didn’t think we couldn’t get a result. That was important as your belief carried us over the line.
“That’s what we really need off you, it’s really important. It’s never about players, chairman or directors, but us all.
“That was really noticeable that that game you were absolutely fantastic so if we get that and try and entertain and get results on the pitch it will be a strong combination and that’s what we’re going for.”
