The third-placed Bees will meet second-placed Rovers at Griffin Park to decide the final promotion spot in League One, with Rosler's side two points adrift after their 1-1 draw at already-relegated Hartlepool.

Victory is a must in the game, and Rosler admitted: "We have worked so hard in the last few months to be in the position where we have it in our own hands and now it all leads to the final day.

"It's a home game and we have enjoyed a great achievement in getting there - Doncaster have everything to lose and we have everything to gain."

He continued: "This wasn't the greatest game by any means, in the 25 minutes until they scored we were not at the races, then we lose our nerves.

"When we started to attack we scored and then in the second half we were the better team and had some very good chances.

"Tom Adeyemi had two chances to win the game, we know we can all play better, no question about it.

"Credit to Hartlepool, they showed character and didn't drop their heads after relegation.

"But we are where we want to be and are full of optimism - now we look forward to a full house at Griffin Park."

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!
