Ferguson post-Gills

18 January 2016

Gaffer gutted his side could not earn another dramatic three points.

Darren Ferguson expressed his disappointment – on behalf of the players – that his Doncaster side could only salvage a draw with Gillingham.

Despite Rovers having gone 2-0 down to the high flying Gills, the Scot thought his side were the better team and did enough to take three points.

“I can’t believe we haven’t won to be honest; we dominated,” said a baffled Ferguson.

“We’ve lost poor goals which is why we’ve not won and we’ve missed two absolute sitters at 2-2 and I just can’t believe we’ve not won the game.

“Even at 2-0 down I was screaming at them that there’s still a way to go – we’ve shown we can come back in games and they’ve shown that they can lose leads.

“I’m really disappointed for the players that we’ve only got a draw because we’re now in a position where we’re dropping too many points if we want to be successful because we’re playing catch up.”

Ferguson was relishing the entertaining nature of the football on show, which was aided by his substitutions with both Cameron Stewart and Liam Mandeville contributing to a pulsating 2-2 draw.

“The goal, I fancied him (Stewart) to score it. He’s got great technique, he’s scored a couple like that now and he got us right back in the game,” said Ferguson.

“I have to give great credit to my players and they’re exciting games now aren’t they? I’d rather have it like this than a boring 0-0!

“The fans were good. They could sense at 2-1 that we were back in it. The expectations are different now, they’re a lot more because the results have been more positive.”
