Rovers manager Grant McCann says the club must stay united to secure a place in the end of season play-offs.

McCann's men hold a three-point lead over Peterborough United with two games to play and, although Posh have a game in hand, Rovers know wins in the remaining games against Oxford United and Coventry City should secure a top-six spot.

He said: "We have to stick together, we've come this far and the last thing we want to do is throw our toys out the pram: that is every single person at this football club, including the fans, we won't do this if there's a split in the camp anywhere.

"We want everyone to enjoy this stage of the season, we've got where we arebecause we've enjoyed every game, we've played with freedom and no fear. The lads have come a long way since last season, we want the fans to stick with us too because they've been outstanding so far.

"There won't be any splits in my changing room, the boys are fully focused on the next game now and that's Oxford We have to go on and win that now, the group has been so good this year and we have to find that response in the next one."

Rovers were frustrated against Accrington Stanley on Tuesday night, but McCann wants the whole club to look forward into the final two games of the regular season.

He added: "A game plan is never going to work when you can't pass the ball, and we saw that way too many times in that first half.

"But we have no time to dwell on it now. We made the changes at half time so we could have a go, we just didn't take the chances we had to get back into the game."
