Rovers Going on the Attack!
David Hockaday

Dave Hockaday has been left enthused by his side's performance in running the Blue Square Bet Premier's top two close and he wants that level of performance to continue.

After seeing-off table-toppers Wrexham, Rovers performed ably against second-placed Fleetwood Town last week before slipping to a late and agonising 2-1 defeat.

Hockaday said that standards have been set in those two performances and they must be replicated for the remainder of the season – regardless of the opposition.

"We're in a position now where we know we're safe and, if we are going to do anything in the remainder of the season, we have to win games," he said.

"We didn't sit back against Fleetwood and Wrexham and try to counter, we pressed them high up the pitch and we're going to go and attack at every team as we have nothing to lose now.

"We're eleven points off the play-offs and we know plenty of teams above will have to falter for us to get up there.

"But we are going to prepare to try and win every game and give it a right crack, but in the meantime we will be building off the field, so we can be in a better position each season."

Part of that building process saw Rovers beat Tuesday's transfer deadline to capture Aldershot midfielder Jamie Collins on an eighteen-month contract for an undisclosed fee.

Hockaday hailed the move as a 'statement of intent' that Rovers could tempt a player who was a regular performer in the Football League for the Shots to the New Lawn.

"It's a great signing for us - he brings experience to a young squad. He brings a hardness and a winning mentality," Hockaday said.

"We tried to sign him last season, we've kept our eye on him and got a sniff that something could happen and we managed to winkle him out at the 11th hour.

"He wanted to come here and it shows a statement of intent from the club and it shows that word has got about that this is a good place to be at."
