DELAY ON DECISION COST US – TYSON
DONCASTER Rovers took 35 days to appoint a new manager after sacking Paul Dickov – and striker Nathan Tyson believes the drawn-out recruitment process affected the players.
Former Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson was eventually selected as the man to take the reins last month and Donny are now trying to haul themselves up the League One table.
“I think it did take a toll on the lads because they just didn’t know,” he said.
“Every day it was like,‘this person has been linked to the job, I don’t want that person and I’d like that person’. It was becoming a bit of a circus act.
“That’s no disrespect to the owners. I just wish they could have done it sooner.
“I’m glad it was done and I feel like we’ve got the right man for the job.”
With Ferguson now at the helm, Tyson says the process is well underway.
“It’s about instilling in us what he wants quickly but as efficiently as possible,” added the 33-year-old.
“It’s being drilled into us the way he plays and does things. He’s settling in well with the lads.”
