Doncaster Rovers defender Niall Mason says he is looking to score more goals after netting in the last two games.

Mason has netted from the penalty spot in the wins against Bristol Rovers and Northampton Town in the past week having waited almost 70 professional career appearances for his first goal.

The 20-year-old has taken over penalty taking responsibility from John Marquis, Tommy Rowe and James Coppinger and having netted both his penalties this week, Mason is looking to keep the run going.

“It`s something that I used to do when I was in the youth team, and I never really missed when I was younger. I started practising more and I asked John Marquis a couple weeks ago if I could have the next one and luckily he said yes,” Mason told the Doncaster official website .

“Normally it`s John or Tommy Rowe, but they were happy to let me have it, although I had to persuade Copps too, but thankfully he let me take it and there was no doubt where I was going with it.

“It`s hard at full-back to get goals and, if I can keep taking penalties, then I can keep this run I`m on going.”

His goals have helped Doncaster to back-to-back victories for the first time this season and with the games coming thick and fast over the festive period, Doncaster will be hoping to continue their revival in the next two games against Rochdale and then Peterborough United.

Rochdale are first up at the Keepmoat Stadium for Doncaster on Friday night and they know a win will lift them into the top half of the table for at least 24-hours.

Doncaster start the New Year with a trip to manager Darren Ferguson`s former club Peterborough United on New Year`s Day.
