Ferguson keeping squad fresh

11 April 2018

Manager Darren Ferguson says his Rovers side are well prepared ahead of a busy month in Sky Bet League One.

Rovers have eight games left of the campaign, and Ferguson feels he will need to keep his side as fresh as possible as they head into the final stretch.

“In terms of players getting extra training sessions, we got a lot of work into the squad following the Blackpool game, everyone that was available for that game will be available for the run-in,” he said.

“The players have trained well and they all look very good, we can’t do much about the weather, it means we have to play an extra game in May now which makes it all the more hectic.

“I’ve never experienced anything quite like this run we have to go on, it’s going to be fast and furious but then again, we can make it easier and a lot more comfortable for ourselves if we win the next couple of games and then the momentum can carry us through.”

Recent postponements mean that Rovers have five of their remaining seven fixtures at home, and Ferguson says that the squad are appreciative of the support from the Rovers faithful.

“Our fans have been great, we’ve had great travelling support this season and we saw over 800 at Blackpool, they’ve done really well this season I feel, both home and away, and I’m sure there’ll be hundreds there this weekend too,” he added.

“The games being cancelled doesn’t help anyone really, you’re asking the fans to put their hand in their pocket every three days, five of our last games are at home but it’s still difficult, but it is what it is, and we are grateful to the fans for turning up.

“Their support has been great and we want to back that up with wins, we are taking things a game at a time for the remainder of the season, just like we have done throughout the campaign, you can’t look too far ahead but we want to get over the line now.”
