We need to help the forwards more

Danny Guthrie knows that he needs to start adding goals and assists to his game if he is to keep hold of his place in the side.

The experienced campaigner has been a regular in the centre of the Rovers midfield in recent weeks, but he isn't taking anything for granted.

Guthrie believes he and Corry Evans have struck up a decent partnership, and after combining to good effect in providing the assist for Sam Gallagher's second against Forest last week, he feels they can continue to do more to help the font men.

"I've been playing well and the team has been playing as well," said Guthrie. "So I'm happy to be in the team and I'm working hard to stay there as there is a lot of competition.

"Myself and Corry feel we have formed a good partnership. We enjoy playing with each other, we both like to work hard as well as being comfortable on the ball.

"The two lads who have been playing up front for us have been doing really well and we probably need to give them a hand in the final third.

"We've got two really good wingers but as midfielders we do have to chip in with assists and goals so it is something that we are looking to improve on.

"There is no-one resting on their laurels expecting to play every week, If you don't play well then you don't expect to play next week, that is the way every club should be."
