Doncaster Rovers are still aiming for promotion to the Championship this season despite their recent dip in form according to midfielder Scott Robertson.

Rovers are without a victory in their last four games, but are only six points off the top two, with a game in hand.

Celtic loanee, Robertson, believes they can take positives from the last few games even though recent results have not gone there way.

He states: “If you had told us at the start of the season we would be in this position, I think we would’ve taken it. It has been disappointing in the last few games, we haven’t picked up the points we wanted to, but we’re still in the mix.

“We know the results haven’t been brilliant, but we haven’t been too far away of where we want to be in the last few games.”

Doncaster take on Blackpool at Bloomfield in their next game tomorrow night, with Robertson expecting a good challenge from the Lancashire side.

He said: “We know it’s going to be a tough game and they have been on a decent run of form, so we need to go there and stick to what we are good at.”

The 19-year-old moved to the Keepmoat Stadium at the end of January, on a loan move until the end of the season.

So far, he is happy with his time in English football, having also spent time with Gillingham earlier on in the campaign.

“My aim is to rack up as many games as possible in a very competitive league, and it will only benefit my game going forward.

“It’s better for me to get more opportunities on the pitch, but the month back at Celtic did me good in getting my sharpness back.”

Robertson also praised manager Darren Moore, and admits he is enjoying playing under him.

“So far it has been pretty much perfect, as he likes to get his midfielders on the ball which will help me when I go back to Celtic.”
