“It’s the last game before the break and we’re coming off the back from the Drogheda United on Monday which was really disappointing” admitted Doyle

“They have big ambitions of wining this league and now have lost the last two games so they will want to get back up on the horse very quickly”.

There was further good news for Rovers during the week with Daniel Mandroiu called up to the senior Ireland squad for the games with Andorra and Hungary.

“They really have developed a numbers of players who have moved on and got international caps” explained Doyle. “They’ve had a few players who have moved onto play in England.”

“They’ve done really well with the development players and it’s really good for the league of Ireland” added the Longford manager while confident knows they face an almighty task.

Defeat for Town could see them further cut off from the rest at the pack at the bottom of the table but Doyle revealed he hopes to dabble in the transfer marker this summer.
