Boss: Players are giving their all

2 May 2018

Manager Darren Ferguson feels the Rovers players have given everything this season.

Rovers were held to a goalless draw by AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday night in a game which saw the London side secure their Sky Bet League One status for next season

“It was a scrappy affair and a game that we probably shaded in possession - we changed the shape because we wanted more width in the side, and it worked at times, but we were missing the quality,” said Ferguson.

“I know the boys have give me everything and the effort was there to see, but the games have caught up with the lads. John Marquis shouldn’t be playing, but he continues to give you everything - it would be nice for him to get to 15 goals this season.”

Wigan Athletic are the visitors to the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday, in search of three points that would hand them the Sky Bet League One title, and Ferguson could rotate his squad for the final game of the campaign.

“It will be a tough game, no doubt about it, they are a team who are coming here to try and win the championship, and I feel we have put in a lot over the past couple of games,” he added.

“No matter what team I pick on Saturday, it will be my strongest, I rested James Coppinger against Wimbledon because he had a bit of a niggle, Joe Wright is nearly ready to come back and I don’t want to risk Luke McCullough too much.

“Danny Andrew completed 90 minutes in a development match on Tuesday, so could feature for 15-20 minutes on Saturday, and Danny Amos came on against Wimbledon and did really well once again.”
