DRFC Stock concentrating on survival

DRFC Stock concentrating on survival

Doncaster Rovers captain Brian Stock is concentrating on Rovers survival in the Championship this season after slipping to nineteenth in the division.

Rovers have slipped from a side looking at reaching at least the end of season plays offs, to a side nervously looking over their shoulders after winning just three games since the turn of the year and the gap between them and the final relegation spot cut to nine points.

With sides currently in the relegation zone beginning to close the gap after picking up wins in recent weeks, Stock believes that if the side don`t record a win between now and the end of the season they could drop into the relegation zone.

Speaking in the Doncaster Star, Stock said, "We want to guarantee our safety in this league. It`s a tough league and nothing is guaranteed even though we are a few points clear of the drop zone. We need to win games. If we don`t win any of our remaining games then there would be the chance that we will be relegated."

Rovers cause hasn`t been helped since the turn of the year after suffering a crimpling injury list that at its height saw them with fourteen players on the sidelines.

A large number of players have returned in recent weeks but they still have Adam Lockwood, James Chambers, James O`Connor, Billy Sharp and Paul Keegan on the sidelines.

Rovers have been boosted by the news that Jason Euell and Franck Moussa have extended their loan deals at the club after impressing in their initial one-month loan.

Still got Preston and Crystal Palace to come to the Keepmoat, I think one more win will be enough for safety. I just want this season to finish its been an unbelievble 2011.

Some very difficult games still to come. two home games in a row are Preston and Palace, nothing less than four points will do from them two games and hopefully get a win somewhere else.
