Luke: No Panic

15 January 2016

Defender McCullough reveals that he knew his chance would come.

Luke McCullough said that his main focus is holding down a regular first team spot and not his international career with Northern Ireland.

The 21 year old is in line to start a home league fixture on Saturday when Rovers host Gillingham; something he has not done since mid-October.

“I’ve come back in to the team recently and hopefully that will be me holding on to my place for a while,” said McCullough.

“I’ve waited for my chance, I wasn’t panicking, I had to be patient and hope my chance would come.

“He (Darren Ferguson) has definitely given everyone a lift, its obvious to see that. We’ve started climbing the league and hopefully we can keep going and going.”

While McCullough played his part in helping his country reach their first major tournament in a generation, he knows that the ‘bread and butter’ is concentrating on League One football for now.

“I need to be playing here first before I can even think about international football,” he said.

“My job is to keep my place in the team here and then that will look after itself whatever happens.

“I want to be involved in the squad going to a major tournament in the summer but the most important thing is keeping my place here and the international manager can make his mind up from there.

“We (Doncaster) are not fearing anyone, we know that on our day we can beat anyone but at the same time there are no easy games. Every time you play, you’re thinking: “This is another massive game,” and there’s no real easy ones where you can take your eye off the ball.

“Gillingham are right up there in the league so they definitely won’t be easy. They're on an unbelievable run of form and people may have expected them to drop off but they haven’t and it won’t be an easy game as they're not easy to play against but we’ll be up for it as well and hopefully it will be a good game.”
