Grant McCann felt Rovers found a different way to win after beating Luton Town 2-1 in Sky Bet League One.

Goals from Matty Blair and Ben Whiteman secured the victory at the Keepmoat Stadium, and the manager was pleased with his side’s battling display.

He said: “They were hard to play against, we started well and should have scored again but we sat back a little bit and found it difficult.

“I think Luton are a very good team, probably the best we’ve played, and it’s a group that are used to winning games. We showed a different side to us when we had to, we were capable of rolling our sleeves up and grinding the game out.”

The win extended Rovers’ unbeaten league run at home to four games, and McCann feels they have to maintain that for as long as possible.

He added: “It was important to get back to winning ways, we’ve shown how well we can perform so it’s good to get three points.

“You have to be able to do both sides of the game well, we’ve been frustrated with dominating games without the result at the end of it. If you want to do well then you have to stay unbeaten at home for as long as you can, we’ve only conceded one goal in four games here.”
