Ferguson calls for focus

13 March 2017

Darren Ferguson wants his players to keep focused, saying that consistency is key as he looks to win promotion to Sky Bet League One.

Rovers are top of the table with 10 games to go and have opened a 14-point gap over fourth placed Stevenage. 

But Ferguson believes that his side are not getting carried away, despite being in the driving seat. 

“It’s about getting the job done now, I feel like we can be as consistent as we have been over the past few games,” said Ferguson.

“We are in a very good position with 10 games to go, my aim for the players and my message to them is to go on and try and win the league. 

“That’s not me getting carried away, that has been my goal from the outset but we have our eyes on the 14 point game to fourth place and the main this is to get promoted and if we do that we could go onto win it.”

Kevin Nolan’s Notts County are the visitors to the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday night, and Ferguson is expecting another difficult fixture against an in form side.

“I think it’s going to a game against a team that is similar to Cheltenham, they are in very good form and have picked up a lot of points of late,” he added. 

“They have had six home games and they are unbeaten there and away from home they have had a win away at Plymouth, and I feel that Kevin Nolan coming in is huge boost for them. 

“He is an experienced man, his personality will give them a lift as well, so they have got that bit of belief back which will help them win matches and like their manager was as a player, they will give it a right go.”
