Rovers head into today’s clash with Crewe Alexandra as favourites, as they welcome the only team below them in the League One table to the Keepmoat Stadium.
Doncaster are eight points adrift from safety with five games remaining and while it feels like a matter of when, not if, they are relegated, Crewe’s visit provides a chance to pick up some much-needed points and restore some hope to their survival fight.
“In my opinion, now we have to win every game. I’ve already said that,” McSheffrey said.
“We have had more than enough opportunities to get out of the mess we are in. Because of the level of performance and the games we should have won, we should have 12 more points because of our performance levels in those games.
“And then in weeks where we played poorly, we came back and other teams didn’t capitalize on it. There were constant opportunities to bridge the gap.
“We should have more points, but at the same time we haven’t been good enough and consistent enough to close the gaps.”
With Doncaster facing the only team below them in the table, today could be the last time they are considered favorites to win a game.
And McSheffrey admits his players will have different levels of expectations to deal with this afternoon.
He added: “We will take one game at a time and it starts on Saturday.
“All I can say is that we go out there trying to win games and Saturday is a great opportunity to get a win.
“We’re favorites to win a game, we’re ahead of them in the league and guys have to deal with that level of expectation.”
Doncaster have no new injury concerns ahead of today’s match. Jon Taylor (ankle) is missing, as are Kieran Agard, Fejiri Okenabirhie and Tom Anderson, who will all miss the rest of the season.
Ethan Galbraith and Mipo Odubeko will push to remind themselves that they missed starts in the 2-0 loss at Wycombe.
