Marquis looks to future

12 April 2017

John Marquis hopes to build on his successful start to life at Rovers in Sky Bet League One next season.

Marquis has scored 26 goals this term as Rovers sealed promotion back to the third tier, and feels manager Darren Ferguson gets the best out of him. 

“I’ve played almost every minute of every league game  this season, I’ve got a manager that believes in me,” he said.

“I feel my game has come on a lot over the past 10 months working with this manager and playing in a good team. I have surpassed my expectations, but still  want to improve. I’m not happy with 26, I want to try and get more and next season want to recreate that in the league above.”

Marquis’ form has inevitably brought speculation about a move higher up the football pyramid, but the forward is settled at Rovers and sees his future as being at the Keepmoat Stadium.

“There’s no reason why I’d want to go anywhere else, my football has come on so much. I can’t speak highly enough of the manager and staff,” he added.

“I’ve got a contract for at least next season here. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time so far, and no one has told me about any interest from any other clubs,” he said.

“As far as I’m concerned I’ve got a year left and hopefully they might want to sit down and sort a new one out, which would be nice. I’m just happy to have played the amount I have, and I’ve five games left to try and win this league.”
