Rovers’ hopes of pulling off a miraculous escape were dealt another blow on Good Friday when they were beaten by Bolton Wanderers.
Doncaster could be relegated to Shrewsbury Town today if they fail to match or better Gillingham’s result when their promotion rivals take on Fleetwood Town.
Gary McSheffrey’s side are six points from safety with just three games remaining and are heavy favorites to drop to the fourth tier.
“We have to continue to believe in ourselves as a group,” Knoyle said.
“People will write us off, but until it’s mathematically impossible, we still have a chance and we have to keep believing.
“We need to go forward and attack the next three games and get the best results we can.”
Despite winning just one of their last three games, Knoyle feels there has been an improvement in Doncaster’s recent performances.
“There has been a difference in us in the last three games,” he continued. “We’ve been up most of the games and created a lot of chances.
“It’s just that with the position we’re in, we have to take the chances and finish the game.”
On what went wrong against Bolton, Knoyle reflected: “I thought at times in the game we played very well, but the start of each half is a definite area where we can improve because it was poor.
“I was sorry to get the tie that we could have kicked and go on to win the game. Acknowledging at that time was obviously disappointing.”
Referee: A Kitchen (Durham).
Last time: Doncaster 1-0 Shrewsbury, December 11, 2021, League One.
