Another monkey off their backs
John Sheridan couldn't be anything but delighted and he told Latics World, "Obviously I enjoyed it, but I was getting a bit agitated towards the end! I thought we played very well. Doncaster are a good footballing side and we matched them. We scored two very good goals, again we're scoring from other areas and that's important. Doncaster played most of their football in front of us. We knew they have very good players and that we had to get in and amongst them, and we did that. We forced them into one or two long balls and that's not their strength. We kept their better players quiet and I think our game plan worked very well."
"We can beat anyone in this division on our day. I've got a very young team who can be a little naive at times, but I try to give them as much belief as possible. As a manager they know I will give them a chance, it doesn't matter how old they are. If they've got belief then that will stand this club in good stead for the future. Some of the youngsters are in the team now and they've had to grow up fast, and tonight they showed their ugly side and worked their socks off for the team. It was a great team display tonight. We changed our formation a little and the players listened well and stuck to what they had to do."
