Slipping up at this stage of the season could be disastrous for Doncaster Rovers as it may see them throw away their chances of reaching the play-offs after such a successful season.
Grant McCann’s side saw their streak of four consecutive victories in League One end last Friday as they succumbed to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of automatic-promotion chasing Sunderland.
Although this particular result was not pounced upon by their nearest challengers Peterborough United who drew against Fleetwood Town, the Cambridgeshire-based side closed within three points of Donny by securing a late equaliser against the Black Cats yesterday.
Despite Rovers currently have a vastly superior goal difference in comparison to Posh, if they do not deliver an immediate response to their defeat at the Stadium of Light, panic may start to set in between now and May.
Therefore, it is extremely important that they are at their very best when they face Accrington Stanley later tonight as a win would allow them to move six points ahead of Peterborough.
Although John Coleman’s men are currently 18th in the league standings and just two points above the drop zone, a victory over Rovers would see them take a massive step to securing survival and so they will be gearing up to cause an upset.
With the likes of John Marquis and Herbie Kane returning to full fitness in recent weeks, there is no reason why the South Yorkshire-based outfit cannot end the season on a high.
However, if they fail to beat Stanley, they may struggle to pick up the points necessary to secure a top-six finish in their final two fixtures as they face tricky match-ups with Oxford United and Coventry City who are both in fine form in the third tier.
What do you think Rovers fans? How important is it to get back to winning ways against Accrington? Are you confident that your side can still secure a play-off position this season? Let us know below.
