Bafana Bafana captain, Dean Furman was delighted to find the back of the net this past weekend, but insisted points for Doncaster Rovers are more important than scoring goals for himself.
The 26-year-old only scored his second goal for Doncaster in a convincing 3-0 win over Yeovil Town and is happy with his side's recent performances.
“It’s a pleasing feeling to get on the end of a goal, I have worked on this aspect. But to be honest, as long as we are winning, that’s what’s important,” Furman told Soccer Laduma.
“We are approaching the end of the season and we are right in the mix. The most important thing is that we reach the playoffs and whoever scores is not important.”
The central midfielder also spoke about his Doncaster’s promotion chances and how he battled himself back into the starting XI.
“Definitely, we have a very good squad now,” he answered when asked whether his side can be in the mix for promotion.
“A few players have come back from the AFCON and we have also had a few new additions, which is great for the competition for places and we are going to need everybody towards the end of the season.
“Whenever I go away, it’s always difficult due to the travelling and the games that I have missed.
“When I come and the team does well no one has the right to walk straight back into the team. I have to work for my place, and it’s great to be back in the line-up, but I have to keep on working hard to keep my place.”
Furman’s Doncaster now sit in eighth position, just one point behind the playoff places in League One with a game in hand.
