Fleetwood Town v Doncaster Rovers Match Preview


by The Rovers Review

Darren Ferguson is wary of a tough run of fixtures ahead, starting with a visit to an energetic Fleetwood Town.

There are no new fresh injury concerns for the Scotsman, who will have Niall Mason back available after missing the Rotherham game through a minor injury.

After dropping two points at the weekend following a late injury-time goal conceded, Ferguson doesn't think that's affected the teams' morale,
"We're in a good place at the moment, we have a lot of belief and we take that to Saturday's game."

Uwe Rosler's Fleetwood Town last year were in contention for promotion to the Championship, and after a fairly inconsistent start the season Town now sit in 9th position, but Ferguson doesn't think it's going to be an easy game.
"They are a very energized team, quite a young team and they play with a three at the back, quite a flexible team in the way they play," he said.
"I like the way they play, the managers put a lot of energy into them and it's always tough up there you know you look at the run of games that we've got coming up and there's some tough matches and this is the start of that run.
"It [Fleetwood] is a hard place to go there's never an easy game there. It will be a tough game; we know that they've got some good pace up front."

Fleetwood, statistically, has one of the best offensive teams in the league as they've scored 27 in their last 17 games; they're three goals behind the league's top-scoring team, Rotherham United. However, Rosler's team are one of the worst defending ones, conceding 26 goals in 17 games. Only Northampton, Bristol Rovers and Oldham have conceded more.
