DRFC Saunders looking for response

DRFC Saunders looking for response

Doncaster Rovers boss Dean Saunders is hoping his players can respond from another kick in the teeth last weekend against Peterborough United with a win against Brighton today.

Rovers dropped points for the second weekend in a row last weekend deep into stoppage time to hinder their fight against relegation.

Peterborough debutant Tyrone Barnett scored a 93rd minute equaliser for the posh to deny Rovers a much-needed three points.

This came seven days after Rovers let a two goal lead slip at Leeds United, where they eventually lost 3-2 to a 99th minute winner.

Saunders says though that a win against Brighton would make the points dropped against Peterborough last weekend would look like a good point.

Speaking on the official website, Saunders said, "I`m pleased with the performances, but we need to turn them draws into victories because we have let five points slip through our fingers. That is football though and it happens to lots of teams but we don`t want to damage morale too much, and we need to bounce back again.

"We got a kick in the teeth at Leeds, a kick in the teeth last week but if we follow it up with a win, then it looks a good point."


Rovers start an important four days today with a home game against Brighton, before travelling to Nottingham Forest for a crucial game, with the midlands club just outside the relegation zone.

A scappy win with Rovers winning with a 90th minute goal will do.
