Darren Moore refuses to get carried away by Doncaster Rovers' win at Peterborough United
It may have been one of the best performances of the season and certainly was one of the most memorable wins but Darren Moore refused to get carried away by Doncaster Rovers’ triumph at Peterborough United.
Rovers ran out deserved 3-0 winners at London Road after a fully rounded performance that saw excellent work out of possession coupled with much-needed ruthlessness in front of goal to end a five game winless run in League One.
But level-headed boss Moore insists Rovers cannot expect momentum to have shifted in their favour overnight and pledged to immediately begin preparations for Sunday's clash with Sunderland.
“It's three points for us – we savour it on the day but the next morning you have to start planning because the window for planning is so short,” Moore said.
“We’re delighted and I'm really pleased.
“I’ve always maintained that certain consistency and there is a certain belief within the players.
“The boys performed well but you saw us score the goals and there was a little bit more of a ruthlessness to us.
“It’s just about keeping that going. Keeping the performances high and keeping the belief going.
“They all know what we think of each other in there. That is why we’re all delighted as a group because we win together and we lose together.
“It was a great rewarding three points but we move on to the next one on Sunday.”
Moore felt the performance and result was further affirmation that Rovers are on the right track following a summer of upheaval at the club.
“It’s about getting the structure right and getting the personnel right," he said.
“We’re a team and there has been so much change over the summer.
“You’ve seen the change from last season on the field of play and the structure of the club. There's been a lot of change in the last five or six months.
“That is why you’ve got to maintain the consistency because it takes time for it all to gel in. We’ll keep doing that.
“I’m still looking to get better and that will never ever stop.
“It was rewarding in terms of the team’s performance on and off the ball."
