George Miller feels a win against Crawley Town boosts the morale around the team heading into October.
Miller scored a brace in the win over Crawley with his first goal coming from the penalty spot and the second came after Kieran Agard’s threaded ball fell into the path of Rovers’ number nine.
He said: “It is good to get on the scoresheet, but even better to get a win after our recent league form as it boosts morale.
“If our previous three defeats to three very good teams had come sporadic throughout the season it wouldn’t have looked as bad. It was only because they came on the bounce.
“But the win against Crawley was a good yard stick to see where we are and how we can perform against teams who aren’t at the top end of the table.”
The number nine hit five league goals from 10 games against Crawley and his inspiration to score more is to do it for the club where he feels like he is part of a special family.
He added: “Five in 10 goals is good going. I have to keep my performances up because I am not doing it for me, I’m doing it for Doncaster Rovers.
“This club is part of me. I have never felt as welcomed or as much like a family than I have since coming here.
“This was our first test of a team outside the top 12 which reflects the kind of start we have had to the league.”
