Whiteman buzzing after strike seals Luton win

Ben Whiteman revealed there was a real buzz in the changing room following Rovers' 2-1 win over Luton Town in Sky Bet League One on Saturday.

The midfielder scored just 35 seconds into the second half to seal three points at the Keepmoat Stadium as Rovers extended their unbeaten home record in the league this season.

"We're all delighted that we've managed to grind out the result, to win like we did showed a different side to us - we've got what we've deserved after a lot of that hard work over the past few weeks," he said.

"The character the boys have shown is massive for us, it was a huge effort from everyone that played and we're all coming away very happy with the result.

"I don't see any reason why we should fear anyone in this league, on our day we can play anyone off the park and, as we've seen here, we can dig a result out when we need to as well."

Whiteman's winner was his first goal for Rovers since New Year's Day away at Peterborough United and, while he was relieved to end his wait for a goal, the midfielder says getting the win was more important.

"It's my first goal since I signed here permanently and I'm always looking for the chance to score so I'm happy one fell for me, I got lucky with getting on the rebound but I timed my run well and stuck it in the back of the net," he added.

"At the end of the day all that matters is getting the three points come full time, luckily we've managed to get the win - we're always going to create chances and it's fell for us.

"We're not going to be resting up now. We need to be back in on Monday morning in training, working hard ready for the next game, we want to continue our form now with a win at Walsall and that's what we'll be setting out to do."
