Goalkeeper Seny Dieng felt Rovers responded to midweek disappointment in perfect fashion as his clean sheet - on his first league start - helped seal a 2-0 win over Peterborough United.

Dieng was pleased to shut out the Posh, who were the league’s top-scorers heading into the game.
 
“It was a great way for us to respond with a result like that after a defeat during the week, to come back and win 2-0 with a great performance from the boys means it’s a great three points for us,” he said.
 
“I go into any game with the same preparation, I just want to play my game the right way and I feel that’s what I did here, it’s good for me to keep a clean sheet against a team that are top of the goal-scoring charts at the minute.
 
“It’s great for the whole team too to be able to stop them from scoring, the clean sheet is definitely down to the team performance here, we’re all very happy that we’ve been able to bounce back quickly.”
 
Dieng is on a season-long loan from Championship outfit Queens Park Rangers, and says the London club are keeping a keen eye on his progress during his time in South Yorkshire.
 
“Yyou always have to be prepared to play, you always have to expect to be called upon, luckily for me my chance came up ahead of this game,” he added.
 
“I’ll carry on doing the same in training to try and maintain the starting position, I just have one focus and that is do the best I can while I’m here. 
 
“Queens Park Rangers are watching clips of my games and they’ve also had someone to watch here too, I keep a close relationship with them too and hopefully everything together can help me to improve.”
