DRFC - O'Driscoll delighted

DRFC - O'Driscoll delighted

Sean O'Driscoll was predictably delighted after their opening day win against Derby County at Pride Park.

Most people are predicting Derby to be amongst the favourites for promotion this season whilst Doncaster are one of the favourites for relegation.

Playing in front of a full house Doncaster continue to play the way they did throughout their promotion season last term.

At times Derby couldn't get near the ball with Doncaster just passing the ball around them.

Its taken Sean time to win over the fans but things are really looking hopeful for this season after this great win.

O'Driscoll talking to Sky Sports straight after the game said 'I felt we played well and I'm pleased with the way we adapted to our first game in the Championship'

The Rovers manager is a very softly spoken man which was one of the reasons Rovers fans were a little worried with his appointment thinking that he lacked passion.
I am sure his number two Richard O'Kelly does all his shouting for him when required and they have certainly got them playing attractive football which last season earned them the tag 'Arsenal of League One'

The boss continued to say ' It was a challenge for our players coming to play against a team that were in the Premier League last season.
The players have showed that they are up for the challenge and now we have to maintain it'

Its certainly been a great start for us in our first season back in the second tier of English football in fifty years and over 3,000 fans went home very happy.
