Ferguson's plan underway

7 May 2017

Manager Darren Ferguson revealed that planning for the 2017/18 Sky Bet League One season is well underway.

Rovers have returned to the third tier of English football at the first time of asking, which also handed Ferguson his fourth promotion as a manager in 10 years, and he has already met with a number of transfer targets.

He said: “I have had a couple of meetings with players already and I will have another one on Monday. 

"All my transfer targets have been identified and all the questions have been asked, and now it just a case of being patient and waiting to see if we can get a deal done.

“It is a big jump to League One and we have to make sure we are ready and get the right people in the building, to continue the momentum that we have in the club and I will try and do that as best we can.”

Ferguson was delighted with how Rovers went about achieving promotion, but always knew that his side could handle the pressure. 

He added: “I have had four promotions now and with this one  the pressure was really there from day one. 

“The expectations were high all the way through the season, so I will have to analyse the first 42 games then the last four and really have a close look at that and where I could have done things differently. 

“But how we have handled the pressure has been very good, I want us to be competitive in League One next season and I’m sure we will be.”
