Confidence is key for Woods

Goalkeeper Gary Woods believes self-confidence is the reason he has been able to cement a regular starting spot at Doncaster.

Woods: Has self-belief

The 22-year-old has been an ever-present for high-flying Rovers so far this campaign, keeping nine clean sheets in 28 games.

Woods made his debut aged just 18 in 2009 and thinks that a firm confidence in his own ability has ensured he has progressed to become manager Dean Saunders' number one.

He told the club's official website: "Everyone looks at it like, 'He's a young goalkeeper,' but I had self-belief - if you don't believe in yourself you won't get very far.

"I've always had confidence in my own ability. Last season I didn't really get a run in the team which is always hard for a goalkeeper at any level.

"This season Dean has given me a run of games and hopefully I'm repaying him with my performances."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
