Marquis looking to bounce back

12 December 2017

Striker John Marquis says it is important Rovers bounce back from their 1-0 defeat against Oxford United when they take on Oldham Athletic on Saturday.

Rovers face the Latics who currently occupy 16th position in Sky Bet League One and sit three points above them in the table, and Marquis is looking forward to getting back to winning ways.

“We were disappointed with the way the game ended against Oxford so will be looking to get back to winning ways at home against Oldham who have a relatively new manager,” said Marquis.

“Our performance levels have been really good of late and some of the results haven’t gone our way lately but this game on Saturday is the perfect chance to bounce back.

“We have some difficult teams that are around us in the league table and it’s a cliché but we have to take it game by game, it’s a great time of year for supporters to watch football, it’s a busy but exciting period for everyone.”

Former Rovers midfielder Richie Wellens brings his Oldham side to the Keepmoat on Saturday afternoon and Marquis says that they will be coming into the game full of confidence after their 5-1 win over Northampton Town.

“I didn’t play with Richie Wellens but all the lads who know him in the changing rooms have said how good he is technically and the way that he played, so I’m sure that he will take his ideas as footballer into management,” said Marquis.

“You can see that in the small space of time that he has been in charge that he has changed a lot of things, they are playing a lot better football and their results have picked up of late.

“They will be coming into the game on Saturday full of confidence off the back of their 5-1 victory over Northampton but we are confident in ourselves that we can go out there and get the three points.”
