Rovers haven't deserved to come away with nothing from their last two games so hopefully they can get back to winning ways on Saturday.

We've had a good record against them in recent years at Donny. They are playing quite well at the moment so it will be a difficult game. We have been really unlucky to lose the last two, I will take playing poorly and getting the three points on Saturday.
