Ben Sheaf felt Rovers ground out a result well against Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday night in Sky Bet League One.
Goals either side of the break from Niall Ennis and Tom Anderson saw Rovers come away from the Keepmoat Stadium with a 2-0 win, and Sheaf believes Rovers found a different edge to their game in order to earn three points.
“It was a good result, a great three points to get on the board, it wasn’t the prettiest of games, they came here to try and stop us and they made it tough for us at times, but its credit to us we managed to grind it out and scored at good times,” he said.
“The first goal probably killed their game plan a little bit, and then Tom come up with a header in the second half, I didn’t think they looked that dangerous throughout the game to be honest, Seny Dieng hasn’t really had to make a save.
“All-in-all, it’s a good three points for us, it’s three wins out of the last four too which is great, we want to get down and play good football, but when teams come and stop us like Shrewsbury did, we have to find a different way to play and we did just that.”
Prior to kick-off on Tuesday night, it was confirmed that Sheaf had extended his loan from Premier League Arsenal until the end of the season, and he is now firmly looking forward towards getting Rovers into a good position come May.
“I’m really happy to get the extension sorted out, since I came here in the summer I’ve really enjoyed being here, I’ve enjoyed my football and I’ve played regular games which is what you want to do when you go somewhere on loan,” he added.
“I’ve learnt a lot already so extending it until the end of the season was a no brainer for me really, Arsenal are pretty happy with how things have been going for me, they’ve just said to continue what I’ve been doing - my focus is fully with Doncaster.
“I’m excited to see what we can do over this second half of the season, we’re not too far off the play-offs now, we know as a squad where we want to be and where think we should be, we have to keep doing the right things in training and hopefully that’ll take us to a good place.”
