Blair ready for battle

26 February 2017

Matty Blair insisted Rovers should not be disheartened after being pegged back late by Accrington Stanley.

Rovers led 2-1 going into the closing stages, but had to settle for a point as the match finished 2-2 at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Blair said: “If we win on Tuesday and Saturday, which we are more than capable of doing, suddenly we are on a run with only one defeat in 14 or 15 games.

“We are a confident bunch and believe in our ability. We haven’t scored as many as we did in the winning streak in January, but once we start scoring them we’ll win games again.

“So we go again. It’s a hard pill to swallow as it’s a game we should have won, but we recover, rest, do our preparation and go and get three points.”

Rovers certainly knew they had been in a battle against Accrington, with the visitors refusing to accept defeat.

Man Of The Match Blair added: “It’ll be like that for the rest of the season, there are teams fighting for promotion, the play-offs or to stay in the league.

“Those battles will be consistent now for the last 13 games, we have to match that and with our ability get the ball down and show the composure to open teams up. Whether it is Accrington or Cambridge, we know it’ll be a battle first, then play our football after.”
