Darren Ferguson has hinted at adding more experience to his Doncaster Rovers squad in the next transfer window. Rovers have signed 21-year-old Sheffield United midfielder Ben Whiteman this month and bolstered their development squad with Finn Harps defender Shane Blaney, who turns 19 today. A shift to signing younger players is one of the hallmarks of Ferguson’s reign. But the Scot, who takes his team to Shrewsbury Town today, says Rovers are also monitoring more experienced campaigners.
Doncaster Rovers will, first and foremost, have to match Shrewsbury Town’s work ethic if they are to extend their unbeaten run beyond this weekend. Those are the sentiments of boss Darren Ferguson ahead of tomorrow’s testing trip to face League One’s surprise package. Paul Hurst’s second-placed side, tipped to be among the relegation favourites before a ball was kicked, have defied the odds by not only setting the pace but, thus far, lasting the course.
It’s not like a Darren Ferguson team to be conservative. But attack-minded right back Matty Blair says an element of exactly that may be the key to Doncaster Rovers’ impressive defensive record. Rovers, who visit surprise high flyers Shrewsbury Town tomorrow on the back of a six-game unbeaten run in League One, currently boast the fifth best defensive record in the division.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
