Preview: May on Doncaster Rovers

22 October 2021

It's a special day for Alfie May on Saturday as the striker returns to the club that gave him his break in the professional game.

It will be May's first visit back as a player to the Keepmoat Stadium since he left Doncaster Rovers to sign for Cheltenham in January 2020.

Despite the emotional connection with the club that gave him a professional deal having spent his entire previous career in non-league, he recognises how important Saturday's game is though to Cheltenham's continued push to achieve success in the third tier.

"When the fixture list came out it was a big game seeing when we played Donny," he said.

"I will be interested to see the fans reaction. I left on good terms personally and I look at every fixture that they play to see how they've got on. It is a club close to my heart and I've got a lot of respect for.

"They've not had a great start but they're a massive club. As a former player that's got so much respect for the club it's hard to see them down there.

"We can't think because they're bottom of the league that we're going to turn them over. 

"We've played some big teams in this league. We can stand our ground and we are in this league for a reason.

"We've got a place where we want to be and it is taking it game by game and doing what we do at the training ground and around the building."
