Darren Ferguson wants Doncaster Rovers to maintain the winning feeling from last season as they look to tackle League One once again.
Rovers surged back into the third tier at the first time of asking, barring a poor run of form after sealing promotion, and Ferguson is keen to carry the positive momentum into the new season – one he expects to be a much tougher prospect.
“We’re used to winning games and we want to keep that going,” Ferguson told the Free Press.
“What we have to try to do is keep the momentum going from last season.
“Every game this season is going to be tough, tougher than last season we expect.
“We’re fully aware of that.
“But I’m sure everyone will be expecting a tough game from us, if we do certain things right.
“I think for us, if we can get to the levels we can do, we’ll give everyone in the league a hard game.
“I don’t think we’ll be faulted for our effort. The lads are fit and we go into the season to try to compete in every game.
“We’ve got to be consistent in what we want to do but I’m sure everyone will be saying they want to start with a win.
“We’re going into it in good spirits.”
Rovers begin the campaign with the visit of Gillingham on Saturday.
