Saunders: Looking to continue good form

Goals from Rob Jones and David Cotterill in the space of four first-half minutes set Doncaster on their way to their seventh away win of the season.

And Saunders said: "We've just got to keep pumping the results out and these wins are vital.

"We want to get out of this league as quickly as we can and get back to the Championship. The season is going better than I thought and I'm thrilled to have got the points we have got.

"It's a tight squad and an unselfish group of players and this was a great win for us against a side lacking a bit of confidence."

Saunders praised Cotterill's role in the first goal, saying: "The delivery was excellent and the second was a brilliant individual goal by Cotts (Cotterill), bending it over the keeper into the top corner."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
