We'll keep on fighting

Grant Hanley has vowed to keep fighting for a play-off place until it is mathematically impossible.

The Rovers captain believes performances haven't merited the points they've deserved in recent weeks after four consecutive draws has seen the side lose touch with the teams at the top.

But with the next two games at home against sides above them in the table, the defender feels it is definitely an opportunity to close the gap.

"We all think the play-offs are still do-able at this stage in the season," Hanley told Rovers Player. "It is just a case of taking every game as it comes. It is an old cliché, but that’s our focus at this point.

"We are disappointed that we haven’t taken more points from the last three or four games, but we aren’t far off when you look at performance levels and the number of goals we have scored. I don’t think we are very far off being a really good side.

"We need to concentrate on cutting out the little mistakes now. We know that some of the recent goals we have conceded could easily have been avoided.

"Our next two are against teams above us, so it’s a chance to claw a few points back. There are still seven games left in total, so we are still in with a chance, be it an outside chance now.

"We personally believe that we can take maximum points from all our remaining games."

Tickets for this afternoon's game will be on sale until the 3.00pm kick-off priced from £15 Adults, £10 Seniors and £5 Juniors.
