Moore calls for clear focus from Rovers

12 March 2020

Darren Moore has called for clear focus from his team ahead of tricky clash against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

The Dons sit three points above the relegation zone but have proven themselves a tough team to beat registering draws with Rotherham United, Blackpool and Ipswich Town and have conceded just one goal in their past three games.

“If we want to get a result on Saturday, we’ll have to be good both with and without the ball,” Moore said.

“As a club on the whole AFC Wimbledon have been excellent. They’ve had a hard time and a rapid rise – they’re a solid team and will ask difficult questions at this level. They’ve got one or two players with some individual brilliance in there.

“To get three points against them, we’ll have to earn it. We know we’ve got to have clear focus and be detailed in our approach. We’ve got a team coming here on Saturday that will be determined to finish higher up the season than where they are.”

For the first time since the start of the season, Moore’s squad have a completely clean bill of health meaning competition for places is high.

“It’s good to have and it’s a nice balance to have. It keeps players fresh and vibrant and keeps the competition healthy,” he added.

“You look through the three lines – attacking, midfield and defence – and there’s competition in all three which is what you want.

“Nobody’s got the right to play at any time and when they do step in they are expected to do the job for the team and the football club.

“With the turnaround in games we’ve got in the next few weeks, I’d expect the whole squad to be involved. The best thing the squad can do is keep working as hard as they are and keep that competition fierce.”
