Dickov still hopeful

Doncaster boss Paul Dickov remains confident his side can avoid relegation despite the 3-1 defeat at home to Reading.

Rovers led at the interval but the visitors hit back with a vengeance to score three second-half goals.

Doncaster are now one point above the relegation zone but Birmingham have a game in hand, and Dickov's men travel to champions Leicester on the last day of the season.

"We were all gutted in the dressing room afterwards but we will get it out of our systems before we go again in the final match at Leicester," said Dickov.

"We came out fighting in the first half and put ourselves in a good position with the goal but you have to give Reading credit for battling back.

"I didn't have a clear view of the penalty incident so I can't comment on that but the other two goals they scored were poor from our point of view.

"We didn't allow them to play in the first half but we went a little gung ho after they had equalised from a penalty that came from a goal-kick.

"A point might not have been a bad result for us as it happens but we went for it and had a go.

"Now it's all down to the last match against my old club - who won't be doing us any favours - but I'm still confident we can avoid going down.

"There was drama at this club on the last game last season when we went up by winning at Brentford and there can be drama again at Leicester.

"Whatever happens, we'll go there and give it all we've got because we want to stay in this division - and we can't rely on other results going our way."
