DRFC - Don't panic plea from O'Kelly

DRFC - Don't panic plea from O'Kelly

Doncaster Rovers assistant manager Richard O`Kelly has told fans and players there is no need to panic.

Speaking in The Star he said "Nobody plans to lose six games on the trot, but these things happen in life and you`ve got to deal with them"

The weekend defeat at Barnsley was the hardest to take for fans and players. Leading in the local derby and Barnsley down to ten men the side somehow capitulated in the last 35 minutes and conceded four goals.

O`Kelly continued "We feel that 95 per cent of the things we are doing are ok. If we had gone 2-0 up and Barnsley`s Moore hadn`t been sent off I think the game could have been over"

Although losing six in a row Rovers have played well in four of these and played well for at least one half in the other two.

O`Kelly is still confident that the results will turn and start to favour Rovers, "I think we are quite a resilient side, we`ve come back and won many games. We usually cope with adversity quite well"

With Rovers not having a game for two weeks due to the international break, its given the players and management time to get the results out of their system and ready for what must already be a must win game against Blackpool at the Keepmoat on the 18th.
