Darren Ferguson has confidence Rovers will go on to claim the Sky Bet League Two title, despite seeing their lead at the top of the table cut to two points on Saturday.
The 2-1 loss at Wycombe Wanderers allowed Plymouth Argyle to narrow the gap, but Rovers know that wins in their final two games of the season – at home to Exeter City and away at Hartlepool United – would ensure they cannot be caught.
Ferguson said: “We don’t start panicking or wanting to do anything different, because there is no need. After Monday the loss is gone and we look forward to the next game.
“We’ve got two games left to win the league. You would think four points would probably win it. We can’t let our standards slip, we want to have momentum going into next season.”
Although disappointed with aspects of play in the defeat at Adams Park, Ferguson has told the players that if they reach the standards they hit for most of the campaign then the title will be theirs.
He added: “I don’t want to criticise too much because they have been great all season, but we don’t want to limp across the line. We want to win this league as you never know when you’re going to get another chance to win a title – I’ve never won one as a manager.
“The players know the standards they’ve set themselves, they’ve been outstanding all season. It’s my job now to pick the players up and get a performance in like we’re used to seeing.
“I’m still confident we’ll get the job done, but the level of performance has to be better than what we’ve seen here.”
