DF happy with display

Doncaster Rovers manager Darren Ferguson felt his side did not deserve to lose against promotion rivals Carlisle United.

The Cumbrians ran out 2-1 winners at Brunton Park after goals in each half from the hosts, before Tommy Rowe pulled a consolation goal back in stoppage time. Ferguson is adamant that his side do not want to feel the pain of losing again. 

He said: “It was a decent performance and I don’t think we deserved to lose. 

“I didn’t see much wrong with our performance in the first half, we created chances, we got in the places that I wanted us to but we were not clinical enough. 

“We don’t like losing games and we haven’t lost for a while, so it’s a feeling that we don’t want to repeat.”

Rovers face fourth-placed Luton Town at the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday, looking to extend their lead over the Hatters, who occupy fourth spot, to 14 points. 

Ferguson is looking forward to facing Nathan Jones’ men and knows the atmosphere will play a big part in the game. 

He said: “It will be a good game Luton, they are a good team and we will just have to pick ourselves up again and try and extend that gap to 14 points.

“We are in a good position, if someone would have offered me top spot, 11 points clear of fourth I would have bitten their hand off. 

“The atmosphere will be brilliant, they always travel well and it will be a good game that I am looking forward to.”
