Brown wants more of the same from Rovers

CHRIS Brown believes if Rovers can reproduce the spirit and drive from the win over Bournemouth then they will have no problem lifting the League One title.

The striker made a surprise return to the side on Saturday following a quicker-than-expected recovery from knee ligament damage.

And he is hoping to see more of the same as the dramatic 2-1 triumph which saw Rovers lose the lead and regain it, all inside the last five minutes.

“We’ve just got to make sure we keep applying ourselves in that way and I think we’ll be alright,” Brown said.

“I’m sure plenty of people would have settled for a draw down there but we were battling for the win until the end which was great to see.

“We’ve pulled ten points clear of Bournemouth now which is great.

“But we can’t take anything for granted because it only takes a couple of games for what we’ve got to disappear.”

Brown is hoping to make a telling contribution following his return from injury and earn a new contract at the end of the season.

“There’s nine games left and I want to be playing a part in every single one of them,” he said. “I’ve got nine goals so I’m looking to get into at least double figures.

“My number one target is to stay fit and hopefully I can make a big contribution to getting this club promoted.”

A pitch inspection will be held at noon at the Keepmoat following yesterday’s snow and icy temperatures.
