John Marquis is looking to hit the ground running in his second season with Rovers after penning a new contract with the club.
26 goals in Sky Bet League Two last season earned the front man an improved three-year-deal at the Keepmoat Stadium and he thinks that a good pre-season will help him pick up where he left off.
“Before I came here I needed someone to put their faith in me and trust me as a player, the manager has done that here I can’t thank him enough for giving me the opportunity to play games regularly,” he said.
“There will be an expectation for me to continue my goal-scoring and I believe with the chances we create, as strikers we will take them.
“There was never a doubt in my head in terms of where I wanted to play my football this season, it was just a case of making sure that we got the right deal done.”
After two wins and a draw so far in pre-season, Marquis believes extending their unbeaten run against Guiseley this weekend will help build confidence further.
“We’re keen to try and go unbeaten throughout pre-season as winning games will help us to build some momentum as we go into the competitive games,” he added.
“We’ve got a new challenge in front of us now playing in League One, I’ve played a few games at this level so I know what to expect.
“Belief is key for us, we’ve got a winning mentality within the club after last season and we’ll be looking to carry that on in our first season back in League One.”
