Chaplow: Let's Build

29 February 2016

Midfielder wants Rovers to raise standards for Robins trip.

Richard Chaplow expressed his delight at nicking a goal against his old club Millwall in a 1-1 draw but preferred to focus on the team as a whole.

Chaplow’s second goal of the season – on his 350th career appearance – earned Doncaster a deserved point but the midfielder sees scope for improvement.

“It was a much better performance, more positives to take out of it and it gives us something to build on now going in to Tuesday,” said Chaplow.

“I felt good to be fair, the gaffer has put me back in – against my old team – although I don’t think that had much to do with it in that respect.

“It was a good game to be involved in, end to end, and with chances for both teams.

“I enjoyed being out there and obviously I’ve managed to get on the scoresheet which is always nice but more importantly is the chance to build on it now.”

Rovers now make the trip to Swindon on Tuesday night looking to haul themselves clear of any relegation trouble and the 31 year old has called for the same level of performance.

“I think it’s important to get a win in any way, shape or form, we’ll be looking to do that on Tuesday but the performance was much, much better and it’ll give us a greater opportunity to win football games if we perform like that,” he said.

“The confidence will come from performances and results and from the game we can take a better performance and a result in terms of not losing the match.

“I’d like to think that I always back myself when given the opportunity that I can turn in performances and hopefully turn up with the odd goal or assist. Hopefully I can help the team win football games.

“Swindon play good football; had a good season last year and are in a similar position to ourselves this year. I’m sure it will be an interesting one, they're always fiercely competitive in this league and I’m sure Tuesday night will be no different.”
