"All To Play For"

31 March 2016

Goalkeeper stresses the importance of kickstarting the battle for survival.

Norwich loanee goalkeeper Remi Matthews spoke of his surprise that Doncaster are in their current position in the Sky Bet League One table.

Rovers, who head to play-off chasing Rochdale on Saturday, sit four points adrift of safety with time running out.

“We’ve got it all to play for like I said when I got here. We are fighting relegation and it’s not been a great first two games but we’ve got another seven to go,” said the 22 year old.

“If I’m sitting here with two games to go then maybe I wouldn’t be as positive but we’ve got 21 points to play for.

“If you look at the Blackpool game there’s a lot of positives to take from it but at the end of the day we lost the game and we wanted the three points.

“I thought we dug in deep, stuck together and put on a good show. We hit the bar and if it goes in then it’s a different game while I’m down at the other end with little to do in the second half, they come down and get a lucky deflection which goes in.”

Matthews cited Colchester United as an example of how form can turn with the U’s defeating Rovers 4-1 on his debut and then going on to defeat Coventry City.

 “Colchester in the last couple of games have shown that anything can happen if you get one win, it could then turn to two or three wins but that’s what we need,” he said.

“We need a bit of luck and once we get that, we’ll be fine.

“When I first came in I saw a good team spirit, they're positive. I was at Burton at the start of the season and their mind set is exactly the same.

“We’ve got some great players in the team that stick together and that one win will change it all.”
