Moore: Bolton will be tough test

Darren Moore expects to face a well-drilled, experienced team when his side host Bolton Wanderers at the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday.

Bolton sit bottom of Sky Bet League One, thanks in part to a 12-point deduction and a tough opening few months but have picked up some good results and were close to earning a point away at fourth-placed Coventry City on Saturday proving they are no pushovers.

“They’ve had a lot of change this season, but they’ve got an experienced manager and assistant manager there and they’ve got a lot of experienced players that know this level,” Moore said.

“They’re energetic and they work hard for one another. They’re never out of games and they work extremely hard.

“We know it’s going to be a physically fit and experienced Bolton team here on Tuesday night and they’ll be coming here to get a result."

Around two thirds of Rovers remaining League matches are away from home and Moore believes that makes Tuesday’s match and the four remaining games at the Keepmoat Stadium all the more important.

“We want to perform and perform well in front of our home fans,” he added.

“There are five home games left and 11 away, it’s incredible really, but it is what it is and when we’re in front of our home fans, we want to put on a good performance and continue the momentum.

“We don't like to look too far ahead though. We look on each game an isolated game, and we’ll put all our energies into this one. Hopefully, it will be an entertaining match.”
