ROVERS’ players ran through brick walls for the cause against Leicester - and it’s that kind of spirit upon which the foundations for next season can be built.

It’ll take a substantial rebuilding job to avoid a similar struggle for survival when Doncaster kick off their fourth term in the Championship.

But that is a challenge that Rovers should relish and look forward to after working their proverbial socks off to stay in this division.

And if the club can harness the kind of spirit - evident on and off the pitch over the past few weeks - they’ll have little trouble in maintaining their second tier status for many years to come.

The Rovers lads put a serious shift in on Saturday to get the job done there and then.

The likes of Ryan Mason and James Hayter hardly drew breath, while defensive pair Wayne Thomas and George Friend went about their business with a real poise and purpose.
