Doncaster Rovers: Don’t lose if you don’t win urges Reece Wabara

Reece Wabara believes the desire to play attractive attacking football has cost Rovers points this season.

And he believes they should be focused on not losing games first and foremost, rather than going gung-ho for victory.

The full back offered his thoughts on the way to end Rovers’ horrendous home form which has delivered just one win so far this season.

And he says not losing should be the main priority if Rovers are going to establish a strong base at the Keepmoat.

“We were very organised at Swindon and I think we’re going to have to do it at home as well,” Wabara said.

“We need to build a solid base rather than trying to play teams off the park and batter them.

“If we can nick a 1-0 or at least not lose, that’s great.

“Being so keen to win and play beautiful football has maybe cost us a few points this season.

“Ultimately it’s a results business.

“We’d rather win dirty and climb the league as opposed to playing nice and losing.

“I think that’s what we’ve got to do now.

“We’re all on the same page so I think on Friday we’ll rectify it.”

It was revealed this week Wabara has been offered a new contract with his current deal set to end on December 31.

And after being an ever present for Rovers this term, the 22-year-old admits he would like to stay at the Keepmoat.

He said: “The gaffer has had faith in me from day one. I appreciate that.

“Hopefully we can get something sorted out and push on.

“We’re in talks now so we’ll just see what happens now.”
