BARROW AFC manager Pete Wild is hoping to bring a juddering halt to Doncaster Rovers fine form tomorrow.

The Bluebirds make the trip to the Eco-Power Stadium to face a Rovers side who are currently enjoying a fantastic run of result.

But having seen his side enjoy the same sort of success earlier in the campaign, Wild knows such runs can and do run out of steam.

And the Barrow boss is hoping it’s his side that can make that happen tomorrow.

He told The Mail: “Grant (McCann Doncaster Rovers boss) has done an unbelievable job there and how they have got themselves back in the mix has been impressive.

“Winning eight on the bounce is fantastic. I remember when we did seven earlier in the season.

“But you also know that’s going to come to an end at some point, and that runs don’t last forever.

“And we want to be the team who brings that to an end tomorrow.”

Wild believes with Rovers battling for a play-off place they may go on the front from the off, which could help Barrow.

Wild added: “We seem to do better at the teams who are pushing for something, and obviously come have a go at us.

“They’ll certainly want to make the pitch as big as possible and try to create space.

“They are excellent on counter-attack, and they have scored some really good goals on the counter-attack, so we need to be aware of that.

“They have got some really good young players, who are playing some really good football on loan from their parent clubs.

“Mixed in with that you’ve got the experience of the likes of Richard Woods, Tommy Rowe and Joe Ironside they have got a mixture of everything.

“So again, we will need to be the best version of ourselves and try to negate the problems they can cause us.”

Rovers’ turnaround has been nothing short of remarkable – having been third bottom of the league in February - they are now just one point off a play-off berth.

Wild says he isn’t shocked that Rovers are now in contention for a play-off despite how far off they were just two months ago.

He said: “I was really surprised to see where they were earlier in the season, but I certainly believe they are where they should be or in and around where they should be currently.”
