Robins dissapointed with Donny display

Speaking to the clubs official website, Mark said; "I certainly didn't think we would be beaten 4-0. I always thought it would be difficult because of the side that I picked. We've got two weeks left until the start of the season and it is still important to give players minutes on the pitch.What disappointed me was that we didn't really get close to them and it took us a while to settle down."

"First of all I've got to say they're a good side.I take my hat off to them because they play in a way that makes it difficult to get close to them. But whichever way you look at it, it was still a good workout today. We'll never come up against a team like that at our level, and probably not even in the level above. They're a really good side and the way they play is very effective."

With a fortnight to go until the league kicks off, Robbo is still looking at his players to put themselves in the picture for a place in the squad that opens against Accrington Stanley.

"I've mixed things up today but we've got another game on Tuesday night, where I'll be looking to play a different side. We've then got a further game on Wednesday night where I'll be looking at the players who don't get a game on Tuesday. I'm not too disappointed - of course we didn't want to lose 4-0 - but at the end of the day it doesn't make any difference. It was a lesson for us today, and we certainly have to be better than we were today. We haven't turned up and nailed the performance like we did on Wednesday against
Forest. I made a few changes from that side and clearly it hasn't worked, but everyone worked hard - they had to because we were chasing Doncaster at times. It took us a while to figure them out, and once again we've gifted the opposition a couple of goals. We know we're got to be better than that, and we will be better than that." he added
