DRFC Saunders - We will start winning games

DRFC Saunders - We will start winning games

Doncaster Rovers boss Dean Saunders believes the results will start to come despite dropping another two points at home.

Doncaster had to come from behind against another side struggling against relegation, Coventry City in a 1-1 draw at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Coventry had taken the lead just past the half hour when Sammy Clingan scored from the edge of the area.

James Hayter levelled for Doncaster on the hour and despite being disappointed to not take the three points, Saunders was relieved not have not lost the game.

'It was important we never lost the game although I'm disappointed we didn't get three points.
'We'd lost three in a row so it stopped a little bit of a bad run," said Saunders.

Saunders was encouraged by Rovers battling qualities to come back from a goal down and he believes that they will start winning games.
'The encouraging aspect was that we came from behind and that's not the first time we've managed to dig out a result since I came here.
'We looked like we wanted to win it and everybody had a go - and that's all I can ask from them.
'I'm still learning about the team since taking over but we'll keep picking up points and eventually I'll get it right and then we'll start winning games,' continued Saunders.

Doncaster remain firmly in the bottom three, with Coventry joining them after Watford won to move out of the relegation zone.

Bristol City also won at Barnsley to move level on points with Doncaster at the bottom of the table.

Doncaster stay above Bristol City on goal difference but they are now four points from safety and have tough games against Middlesbrough at the Keepmoat on Tuesday, before making the trip to Ipswich Town on Saturday.
