When it comes to a play-off campaign, James Coppinger has a history of making his mark in a Rovers shirt.

The 38-year-old believes the squad will grasp the opportunity of playing under pressure, as home advantage in the first-leg could prove to be key.

“Having the first leg at home gives us a great opportunity to set ourselves up leading into the second game,” he said.

“Being at home first can work both ways, I’ve played the reverse where we got a draw away from home and then brought Southend back here and beat them.

“It can work in your favour if you get a good start then it can give you momentum, and we want to continue our good home form. 

 “I think leading into Sunday everything will be positive with the expectation of a big performance at the Keepmoat Stadium.”
