Mathieu Baudry says Rovers are not paying too much attention to what their promotion rivals are doing as the season enters the final stages.
The French defender was on the scoresheet in Tuesday’s 3-2 win at Cambridge United which strengthened Rovers’ hopes of an immediate return to Sky Bet League One – and he and his team-mates know promotion is in their own hands.
“We know what we have to do, if we do our job we will be fine, so we really do not pay attention to what is happening around us,” he said.
“You get a few average results and people begin to say the wheels are falling off but we know what we have to do- and we have to step up now and see these last 12 games out.
“We said before the game how important it was for us to win, I think we played really well at times but at this time of the season it can get really difficult.”
It was an important result for Rovers as they found their first win in six games, and Baudry is expecting the games to get harder as the season comes to an end.
“I said to John Marquis, that I would get three or four in the lead up to the end of the season, and he just laughed at me - but I am getting there and I am happy to be contributing to the team,” he added.
“Once they scored it got the home crowd going and they kept pushing and pushing but thankfully we managed to hang on for the win.”
