Syers: It’s A Great Feeling

Goal hero David Syers spoke to Rovers Player after helping Rovers to a Capital One Cup second round victory over Hull City.

The cultured midfielder played the unfamiliar role of centre-forward during the tie scoring twice to defeat City in dramatic fashion.

Having scored a 90th minute winner, David spoke about his delight to have had a positive effect on the team.

‘It’s a great feeling,’ he said

‘The whole time I have been here I’ve been saying that I want to chip in with goals. I’ve managed to grab a couple against a top team like Hull and we’re into the next round now.

‘It’s a new position for me. I’ve always liked to get in the box but the difference is that you’re getting the ball with your back to goal more than you normally do in midfield. You have to adjust but as long as you have got the other lads running off you it makes it a bit easier.

‘I knew it was going to be tough, the first header Abdoulaye Faye out jumped me by about a foot, after that I thought I was in for a long night - I got stuck in and thankfully it came off with my goals.

‘We conceded early, which is always disappointing, all you can do from there is react. The way we fought back to stay in the game is testament to the team spirit we have here – we knew the longer the game went on we would only get stronger.

‘When the opposition are 2-0 up you need to do something different to try and ruffle them up, we did that well and made it into a battle, then we started playing football which is the way to do it.’
