Dave Robertson overjoyed as Peterborough United march on with win at Doncaster Rovers

16 March 2015

Peterborough United caretaker boss Dave Robertson was overjoyed after his side chalked up a fourth successive victory, over Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off rivals Doncaster Rovers.

Robertson's side looked sharper from the start and snatched the lead in the 16th minute when Luke James scored with a diving header from Jon Taylor's pass.

Rovers had chances to equalise, but goalkeeper Ben Alnwick was in great form for Peterborough, while Harry Forrester and Curtis Main were also unlucky to see shots cleared off the goalline.

Conor Washington wrapped up the points for Peterborough following a breakaway move when he slipped the ball home from Kyle Vassell's pass in the 88th minute.

Robertson joked: "I think I'll phone the chairman and ask for a 10-year contract after that."

He added: "Really it's all down to the players and the way they have responded.

"We've got a terrific spirit at the club and the team performance was unbelievable.

"There's a buzz about the place and we're all in it together - the players, the management team and the fans.

"We had over 2,000 supporters here and although the players were brilliant, the fans, if anything, were even better with the way they got behind us from start to finish.

"Doncaster is a hard place to come and get a result, but we played with a lot of desire and confidence and we were worth the three points.

"It's four wins out of four and the games don't get any easier but the aim is to keep the run going and see how far it takes us "
