Ferguson praises support

3 May 2018

Darren Ferguson believes the final game of the season against Wigan will be a chance for his players to thank the Rovers fans for their support this season.

A big crowd is expected with the Latics chasing the Sky Bet League One title, and Ferguson wants his side to rise to the occasion at the Keepmoat Stadium. 

"I'm hoping that the fact it is the last game brings out the best in us, the crowd have a big part to play and I think that the atmposphere will be a really good one," he said.

"The most important thing is to go out on a high, whatever has happened this season the fans have stuck by us and we want to give something back to them for their great support. 

"We didnt get the performance we wanted against Wimbledon and in the end we just needed to get something out of it, the players will raise their game for the final day of the season."

Both sets of fans are asked to remain in their seats after the game. The Rovers players and coaching staff would like to do a lap of honour to thank supporters for their backing during the season.

Visiting supporters are also asked to stay in their seats as, should Wigan win the title, the trophy will be presented after Rovers have completed their lap of honour. 

The manager reckons the game against Wigan will bring out the best in his side, as they look to finish the 2017/18 campaign on a high.  

"I feel the Wigan game will be a good one for us, people won't be expecting much from us but like every team we want to finish the season on a high in front of our fans," he added. 

"They are a very good team and fully deserve to be in the top two alongside Blackburn, they have been the best two teams in the league and there isn't too much between them.

"Paul Cook has done a great job after winning promotion with Portsmouth last season as well, they deserve a lot of credit for the way they have turned them into such a force in this league."

Saturday's game with Wigan Athletic is an all-ticket fixture, with no cash gates available in the South Stand, and only available to those with a Doncaster postcode, or a previous booking history. Tickets are still available via the Club Doncaster Box Office, either by visiting in-store, calling on 01302 762576, or online at
