DF staying level headed

2 March 2017

Darren Ferguson insists Rovers are still taking one game at a time as the end of season run in approaches.

The win at Cambridge United in midweek saw Ferguson’s side extend their lead over fourth place to 12 points, and the boss says the players are only focused on one thing.

“The message to the players is clear, win the next game and then you can start to focus on the one after that. We need to keep to the standards that we’ve set throughout this season,” he said.

“We’ve mentioned numerous times about getting points on the board, two points a game from now will get us promoted. We’re bang on course if we keep playing our game the way I know we can.

“We need to put our foot on the gas at this stage of the season. We’re back to winning ways and that’s the most important thing. Now we’re fully focused on picking up enough wins to get us to where we want to be.”

Rovers make the trip south to face Crawley Town on Saturday having lost just two of their past 21 games, but Ferguson isn’t taking anything for granted.

“They played well against us at our place, they want to play good football and it’s a good pitch down there. I’ve looked at the grounds we’ve got to go to between now and the end of the season and their pitch is up there with the surfaces we’ll have to play on. It’ll be a good footballing match,” he added.

“At this stage of the season there’s bound to be some strange results. Teams that have been struggling all season will pick up a couple of good results, they’ll find some confidence and surprise a few people.

“There certainly won’t be any complacency from me or the players. We know that every game will be just as tough as any other, we’re ready for the challenge ahead.”
