WITH the spectre of relegation finally removed, Sean O’Driscoll will tell his players to go out and enjoy the last match of the season at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

But there will still be a gentle word of warning from the Doncaster boss, who added: “We can’t afford to totally relax.

“We need to be motivated, competitive and not take our foot off the gas.”

Last Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Leicester ensured a fourth successive season in the Championship for Rovers and, with Scunthorpe relegated, they will start next season as the minnows of the division and favourites to go down.

O’Driscoll admitted: “I don’t think it’s unfair to say we will be the smallest club in the Championship next season.

“We don’t know who will be coming up through the play-offs, of course, but when you look at the teams coming down, who could include the likes of West Ham, it’s not going to get any easier.
