Doncaster Rovers v Crewe: Let’s stay on track against the Railwaymen, urges Dean Furman

Dean Furman says Doncaster Rovers cannot allow over-confidence to creep in against Crewe tonight.

Back-to-back wins against Crawley and Yeovil have lifted Rovers to eighth in League One, a point behind Oldham in sixth.

This evening they face an in-form Crewe team that have won seven out of their last ten - and Furman says Rovers cannot afford to take the Railwaymen lightly.

Furman said: “Sometimes you can be a little over-confident. From a 5-0 win you can start feeling like you’re on top of the world.

“But we can’t feel like that. We’ve got so many games coming thick and fast that we have to just be professional.

“We have to carry on working hard in training and working for each other out on the pitch.

“We’re at a stage of the season where different teams are fighting for different things,” he added.

“We know what we’re fighting for. We’re very focused on where we want to get to this season.

“We’re on a good run of form but we’re expecting another tough game against Crewe.

“They like to get the ball down and pass it, and they can be dangerous.

“We know we have to approach the game in the same way as the last two.”

Furman netted his first goal of the season against Yeovil on Saturday.

He said: “I thought it was never going to happen!

“I haven’t even been able to score in training so the lads were getting on my case a little bit. Hopefully it’ll be the first of many.”
