Keep showing that fight and heart

Rovers may have recorded back-to-back wins over Derby County and Wigan Athletic, but Danny Guthrie feels that there is still plenty more to come from the team.

Saturday's 1-0 win over Wigan Athletic meant a welcome seven points from their last three outings, a victory that moves Rovers out of the bottom three.

But with more tough games on the horizon, the midfielder knows that they'll have to continue to show that dogged and determined streak to keep well away from the relegation places from now until the end of the season.

"Two great wins, two clean sheets, the lads have dug in," Guthrie told Radio Rovers.

"We have played well in spells with the ball, we know we can probably do better, the manager is demanding more of us but we are showing a lot of fight and a lot of heart.

"In both home games the last 20 minutes we've sat back and invited a little bit of pressure but we've looked solid, people filling in for others, getting blocks and making tackles.

"We are where we are so it is going to take that, we've got a good group who are honest and willing to do it but I do think there is more to come.

"The clean sheets are brilliant, if you get a goal and you keep a clean sheet then you win the game, it is as simple as that. We haven't had enough clean sheets this year but we've got a good shape behind the ball at the minute, everyone is working hard, but like I said I think there is more to come.

"We have to make sure this continues to the end of the season now."
