Ferguson targets top-half finish

16 April 2018

Manager Darren Ferguson says there is huge motivation for Rovers to claim all three points against Bury on Tuesday night, which could see his side move into the top half of the Sky Bet League One table.

Rovers could move up to 10th position with a win on Tuesday, and Ferguson says it would be a successful season if his side were to finish in the top half of the table.

“There is huge motivation for us to get three points on Tuesday because that can take us into the top half of the table, so it is a big game for us in that respect,” said Ferguson.

“It would be a successful season for us , if we were to finish inside the top 10 in League One this season, but I have said it all along that we just want to take it game by game and give every game the respect that it deserves.

“Myself and the players have worked together a long time now and we know that we do not want to let the season just float away, there are points to be won and the players understand that.”

Bury were relegated to Sky Bet League Two after defeat to Northampton Town on Saturday, and Ferguson says that Tuesday’s game could be a dangerous one for Rovers as the visitors have nothing to lose.

“If you look at the recruitment that they made over the summer, you saw a lot of big names come into the football club, they were ambitious and you always felt that it would always go one of two ways,” he added.

“To be fair they have Ryan Lowe in charge now, and he has been in charge twice, he’s enthusiastic and he was as a player, and he’s clearly been unhappy with a few things he’s seen of late.

“It is never nice to see a club relegated and they will be up for it on Tuesday night, and it might be a dangerous game for us now as they have no fear factor and that could come into it.”
