DEAN Saunders says his players are physically - and mentally - equipped to dig themselves out of the Championship drop zone.

Rovers travel to fellow strugglers Bristol City on Saturday hoping to follow-up their lung-busting display at home to promotion chasing Cardiff City and end a run of five straight defeats on the road.

The high octane performance against the Bluebirds showcased Doncaster at their leanest and meanest, according to Saunders.

Now the Rovers boss wants his players to reap the rewards of their new intense training regime away from the Keepmoat Stadium.

Saunders said: “The players are working harder than they have ever worked before and we’re starting to get some consistency in our game.

“You could see on Saturday how we were able to compete with a top side and we’ve shown what we can do in the wins over Southampton, Leicester and Barnsley.

“From what I can gather training is a lot more intense now than what it used to be - there’s no hiding place.”
