Midfielder Liam Noble grabbed a goal in each half to give the Cumbrians victory at the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday night and end Rovers' six-match unbeaten home run.

Abbott said: "The lads were terrific - every one of them right through the team.

"They all did their jobs and stuck to the game plan against a difficult team on a difficult surface.

"The last thing we wanted was to concede an early goal and we defended superbly right from the start.

"Without being disrespectful to Doncaster we looked comfortable and won a tad comfortably in the end.

"I'm pleased for Liam Noble because he's not shown off his best in the last few games but he can be a top player if he develops other sides of his game.

"He was top drawer in this game. In fact, the midfield was really dominant and the effort and determination we have shown in the last few games has been tremendous."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
