Manager Darren Ferguson is expecting a difficult challenge when Fleetwood Town visit the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday in Sky Bet League One.
Ferguson’s men are still in search of their first win in 2018, but the manager is confident that their hard work this week will pay off.
“I know what I want us to do, and we will go through it all and prepare, we want to get back to where we can be and improve the level of performances,” Ferguson said.
“We have a mental toughness about us, we have shown that we can dig out results when needed, and that’s always a good sign, our last eight games have seen us dig out some great points.
“It was a tight game when we played there, they played a different system to the one they are playing now, Uwe Rosler is a very experienced manager who has done very well, but they’re on a bad run so it’s a big game.”
Rovers’ recent winless run has not been through want of trying, with battling draws against Peterborough United, Scunthorpe United and Portsmouth all showing that Ferguson’s side are moving in the right direction.
“We have to get back to basics to be able win games, we may not have got perfect performances over the last 20 months, but we have got some great results, so we all know that we have it in us,” he said.
“We are managing to pick up points, Shrewsbury had only lost one game at home prior to us getting two goals back, Scunthorpe and Portsmouth were both tough places to go, and then the late goal against Charlton shows we are doing okay.
“That would suggest that it’s there and that we are capable of doing things right, we don’t want to look back on results, these games have gone, we have to focus on what is in front us of, starting with Fleetwood.”
