The Football League Paper - - INSIDE - By Sam Hawthorn

DON­CASTER Rovers striker John Mar­quis has set his sights on 30 goals this sea­son, hav­ing reached 20 in mid­week.

Mar­quis, 24, left his boy­hood club Mil­wall last sum­mer and has been a rev­e­la­tion at the Keep­moat Sta­dium, join­ing a se­lect group of Rovers who have net­ted 20 times in a cam­paign.

He made it 20 by net­ting what turned out to be the win­ner from the penalty spot in the 3-2 vic­tory at Cam­bridge United last Tues­day.

Mar­quis, whose pre­vi­ous best goal tally was ten, be­lieves that reach­ing 30 will aid his side’s pro­mo­tion bid.

“I’m not go­ing to get too car­ried away and too far ahead of my­self,” he said.

“But I’d say if I did get to 30 goals there’d be a good chance I’ll have a win­ner’s medal around my neck.

“Hope­fully we can keep on scor­ing, my­self and the team.

“It was just a new chal­lenge for me to move up here and hope­fully do enough to break into the team, score goals and put in the per­for­mances to keep me in the team.”
