Alfie May says there is a real belief that something special is coming together around the Keepmoat Stadium as Sky Bet League One heads towards the business end of the campaign.
Rovers entered the play-off places after Saturday’s 3-1 win over Peterborough United, and now with two games in hand starting with Tuesday’s visit of Southend United, May believes there is real unity within the side.
“The lads have been unbelievable all season, there’s a real togetherness around the squad and we all want to succeed as a team, there are no individuals in the side, it’s everyone wanting to push on towards the end of the season,” he said.
“It’s a great club, and the football that we play at the minute means we’re on the front foot a lot, we try to press a lot, and I think a lot of teams find that style hard to play against, we’re a fit team and I think it’s good to have that in a side.
“We’re not getting carried away at all, we know that anybody in this league can beat anyone, you have to keep doing the things that have been successful so far and then build on that, we’re just trying to stick at the same level and not get ahead of ourselves.”
May is currently Rovers’ second-highest scorer this season, scoring 11 goals in both league and cup, but with the competition for places being so tough, the forward says there is so much versatility in the team which can be drawn upon by Grant McCann.
“I’m working as hard as I can to force my way into the starting line-up, it’s down to myself to push myself to get in, we have so many different attacking options that we can draw upon, everyone offers something different and there’s so much quality,” he added.
“The gaffer would never put anyone under any pressure to perform, before you come on he always says for you to go out and change the game, no matter what the result is at the time, and that’s all I can try and do, to try and help us pick up as many points as possible.
“I relish the competition and of course it makes you want to fight hard for your shirt, you have to grab any opportunity with both hands when it comes. We’re heading towards what is a crucial part of the year and I really want to be involved.”
