DONCASTER Rovers bid to end a disappointing year on a high in today’s Championship clash at Watford (1pm).

The Hornets go into the game on the back of a seven-match unbeaten run though five of those were draws.

“Obviously we want to bounce back from the Boxing Day defeat at Burnley,” said Rovers star James Coppinger.

“I missed the draw at home to Watford through injury but thought if anyone was going to win it it would be us. We are starting to get some consistency in our performances.’’

Rovers boss Dean Saunders has set his side a target of 10 wins in the second half of the season, which starts today, in order to secure the club’s Championship status. for the 2102-13 campaign.

“That would take us to 49 points,” said Saunders, who is confident that Rovers will stay up.

“We’ve beaten Southampton and Leicester and we can beat anyone and that’s the way the players have got to think, but they’ve got to be prepared to do the horrible side of the game and work hard when we haven’t got the ball.”
