Darren Ferguson is ready to stop talking about his style of play.

The new Doncaster Rovers boss admitted feeling there has been too much discussion regarding the brand of football he is looking to impose upon the club.

And Ferguson insists picking up wins is his primary concern right now.

“There’s a lot been spoken about this brand of football and I think being honest, a bit too much,” he said.

“Of course I want to play football and I always have played entertaining football.

“But I don’t want it to be made out that it’s going to be something that no one has ever done before.

“All I’m saying is that whenever I’ve been at clubs, we try to entertain and score goals.

“I think, asking any of the players, they want to do that anyway.

“We just want wins at the moment and see where that takes us.”

Ferguson confirmed Gary MacKenzie will miss Saturday’s trip to Peterborough United due to a thigh injury picked up during Tuesday night’s win at Shrewsbury Town.

MacKenzie is likely to miss the next fortnight at least and Ferguson said he had made tentative enquiries in the loan market

But he insisted there will be no new arrivals before the weekend.

He said: “It’s something that is still on my mind – not for Saturday though.

“We’ve got Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday.

“I’ve made tentative enquiries. I have to in case we get other injuries.

“With Gary being out maybe two weeks I have to be considering making sure I’m prepared.

“I’ve made certain phone calls. But for Saturday I’m happy to go with that we’ve got.”

Luke McCullough will start for Rovers on Saturday.
