Doncaster midfielder James Coppinger believes beating Barnsley would be the perfect response to the disappointing Crystal Palace defeat.
Palace's Pablo Counago found the net at Selhurst Park last time to inflict a first defeat on Rovers in five league games.
But Coppinger is remaining positive and is looking for Rovers to bounce back and earn the bragging rights over the Tykes in the derby clash at the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday.
He said: "Next Saturday's game is a big game for the fans and the area, being a local derby against Barnsley, but it's a fantastic opportunity for us to get back to winning ways.
"We'll be looking to do that in training this week and that's something we have at this club. When we get disappointed by a poor result, we always look to bounce back - and we'll look to do that.
"We don't get too high when things go well for us and we don't get too low when we get bad results. We stay positive and we'll look forward now to next weekend's game."
