'If It's Football, It's Vital'

DRFC - Ryan fights O'Driscoll's corner

Sean O`Driscoll has been assured his job is safe by club chairman John Ryan.

O`Driscoll had a meeting with the Rovers chief this week to discuss how Rovers can change things after six straight defeats, it`s the club`s worst run since the 1998 season.

Rovers currently lie second from bottom of the Championship and are the lowest scorers in the division with only five goals.

John Ryan even questioned his own position at the club after the poor run of results. That is something that I find ludicrous after what he`s personally put into Doncaster Rovers over the last ten years.

The chairman speaking in The Star said "No-one is putting their heads in the sand, we are second bottom of the Championship table."

Rovers have dominated quite a few of these games but have found goal scoring a problem with only Lewis Guy of the centre forwards so far finding the net.

Regarding the boss Ryan said "There will be no changing the manager either. In fact, I see Sean O`Driscoll in the job for many years to come"

That`s easy enough to say at the moment; O`Driscoll has never been a huge fans favourite during his time at the club even though he`s brought the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy and League One Play off success to the club in the last two seasons.
There has always been a huge divide between the supporters both for and against the manager and a few more defeats may see the anti O`Driscoll brigade in full voice again.

Personally speaking I think we are just a good strike force away from being a very good Championship side; the football he`s got us playing is a pleasure to watch. We just need the goals and the points will come.

Ryan still remains confident that the Rovers will survive in the Championship even though we are on such a bad run saying "I am confident we will stay up, as long as we do, that will feel as good as any promotion"

The next game is at home against Blackpool, a game that I feel Rovers must really take three points from or we will soon be adrift of safety.

It wont take the Rovers fans much longer to start to voice their opinions if results don't change!

SOD getting the dreaded vote of confidence from the chairman? I think the last thing the team needs at the moment is the upheaval of a new manager.
