CAPTAIN Rob Jones insists Doncaster Rovers can take some home comfort from their frustrating derby draw with Sheffield United.

Jones acknowledged after the Blades’ dramatic comeback that Doncaster’s stuttering home form, which has seen them lose five times at the Keepmoat Stadium, has not been up to scratch.

But the fans’ favourite reckons Rovers are on the verge of transforming their club record equalling away form into points at home.

And the big defender is convinced that Tuesday’s performance against the Blades was a huge step in the right direction.

Jones said: “Our away form has been fantastic all season. At home, we are indifferent.

“If we knew why that was, we would do something about it. That was probably the best we have played this season at home. We should have wrapped up the game.

“They are above us in the division but we minimised them to minimal shots and we bossed the game from start to finish. We are working extremely hard to improve our home form,” he added.

“We know it is not as good as we expected it to be.

“We have to be thankful for the away form because it is keeping us in there.

“We are trying to correct it and put it right and go on a good run.”

“It will come,” insisted the former Sheffield Wednesday defender. “We are still third and three games unbeaten.”

Rovers equalled their club record run of 11 consecutive away games unbeaten with victory at Preston North End on Saturday.
