Rovers are currently one of only three sides outside the top six to boast a positive goal difference (+1).

Ferguson said: “When you look at the league I think it tells a story that, outside the top six, there’s only us and two other teams that have a plus goal difference.

“That tells a story that we’ve been very close in games.

“What we’ve managed to do in the last two home games is turn these draws into wins and it makes such a difference.”

Ferguson acknowledged the importance of victory against Bradford City on Monday night - particularly with his side not in action this weekend.

Rovers are six points clear of the drop zone.

“I felt Monday was a big game,” said Ferguson. “In my own mind I was thinking if we could get a win it would really set us up for the last nine games.

“We’re down to single figure games and we’ll treat each one as it comes. I think we’ve got some winnable games left. We’re not going to get carried away, we’ll just try and get as many points as we can.”
