<p>Doncaster player coach Paul Cooke spoke to the Dons official website in the build up to Sunday&rsquo;s clash with Rochdale Hornets.</p>
<p>The Dons are looking to get back to winning ways against the Hornets, following back to back defeats.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Cooke insisted his side need to turn in a good performance, insisting that home form will be crucial for the Dons if the club are to finish in the top eight.&nbsp;</p>
<p>He said: &ldquo;There is pressure on us as a group to win the game, not from outside, but from within.&nbsp;</p>
<p>&ldquo;Whoever takes to the field, has to play to the best of their ability, or again we will look at making changes.</p>
<p>&ldquo;There is certainly a pressure from me and the rest of the players to perform well.</p>
<p>&ldquo;We have got to win these games at home, whilst everybody else feels we should win the game, we certainly feel we should win the game ourselves&nbsp;</p>
<p>&ldquo;However that is not a given by any means, Rochdale have had a good run and picked up some good results.&nbsp;</p>
<p>&ldquo;We are at home against a team who will be in and around us in the table and it is certainly a massive game from us.&rdquo;</p>
<p>Cooke also believes that the game plays a big significance in the Dons season, with it being the last home game until June 29<sup>th</sup>.&nbsp;</p>
<p>The Dons will play away from home in the next four weeks after the Rochdale match, making a victory in the game even more important.</p>
<p>Cooke said: &ldquo;Its massive, we have been patchy away from home to say the least, we have lost a few and whilst at home we have lost only just once.&nbsp;</p>
<p>&ldquo;The Rochdale game is huge for us because the pitch is being re-laid and we travel for a month.</p>
<p>"It is vital that we win this game and move on and look at teams after that.&rdquo;</p>
