But he insists his relegation-threatened side will attempt to take the game to Rovers at the Keepmoat Stadium tomorrow.

Brady, who was previously coaching Town’s under-18 side, took the reins following Keith Curle’s sacking on February 10.

Back-to-back home wins over Plymouth Argyle and Portsmouth breathed new life into the Cobblers’ survival bid prior to their defeat at Charlton Athletic on Tuesday night.

“They are in a bit of a period of transition with the change of manager but they play a fantastic expansive style of football,” Brady said of Rovers.

“I’m a bit envious of the way they play but like always we believe we can go there be competitive and go and take the game to them.

“We are confident in our strengths and we will be going there to try and win the game as Doncaster will be.

"It should be a good game and we are looking forward to it."

Northampton have not won on their travels in 11 attempts in the league and have the second worst away record in the division.

They sit 21st in the table, one point from safety.
