DF post Luton Town

20 February 2017

Manager Darren Ferguson praised striker Alfie May after his goal rescued a point against Luton Town.

The 23-year-old, who signed from non-league side Hythe Town in January, came off the bench to slot the ball past Hatters goalkeeper Matt Macey with 10 minutes left of the game. 

Ferguson admits that May has given him some food for thought, ahead of the next Sky Bet League Two game against Accrington Stanley. 

“Alfie’s composure for the goal was brilliant, his first touch out of his feet to get him in and his finish was excellent,” he said. 

“Ask any of his team-mates and they will tell you he is a good player, he has earned the respect of the team and the boys have really taken to him.

“He has settled in very well and he has given me a big decision to make now next week, there is no question about that.”

Rovers found themselves on the wrong side of the scoreline after 54 minutes, as forward Jordan Cook broke the deadlock at the Keepmoat Stadium. 

But Ferguson was delighted with the way his side reacted to going a goal down, and how they managed to maintain their unbeaten home record in Sky Bet League Two. 

“I thought we were the dominant side in the first half, it was clear early on that it was going to come down to concentration,” said Ferguson.

“As a team we showed a lot of guts and determination to not lose, we want to keep this record at home going. 

“We haven’t lost any ground to Plymouth, we are 11 points ahead of the play-offs with 14 games to go, and I think we are in a very good position.”
