Midfielder Wants Big Atmosphere For Doncaster Game

Barry Ferguson expects the Blackpool fans to get right behind the team when Doncaster Rovers come to Bloomfield Road tomorrow.

The midfielder, who will take charge of The Seasiders for the fixture, hopes that things can start moving forward again following a difficult run of results.

"It's been a difficult period in the last eight or nine games but I think the fans will get behind us, no problem," he said. "Once the boys go out on the pitch, I'm sure the fans will get right behind them.

"It's a massive game. We're eight points off the relegation zone and nine points off the play-offs so we're still in a healthy position in my eyes.

"There's 20 hard games to go but we've got to be positive. We've got a right good squad of players here. The main thing is that everybody gets behind the team."

Ferguson, who admits to feeling nervous and excited, is yet to decide whether he'll play in the match, as he looks to guide the team to a big three points.

"If we don't win on Saturday then we could get dragged in. On the other hand, if we win, we could fly up the table," he said.

"I'm not looking any further than Saturday. I'm just here to take training and take the team on Saturday. We'll take it from there on Monday."

"Doncaster had a great result last Saturday against Wigan so we know it's going to be difficult but I'll do everything I can to help the boys. Hopefully we can get the three points," he added.
