Manager Brian Flynn spoke to Rovers Player after the game against Coventry City and despite the loss admitted that the performance in the second half was a positive one.
“It was a very positive second half,” he said
“You have got to take your chances. It doesn’t matter if you’re a forward, centre half or even a goalkeeper going up in the last minute of the game, if an opportunity comes inside the penalty box you have got to take it.”
The second half saw the introduction of midfielder Dean Furman, which lifted Rovers, and his side took control of the game.
“The better team led at half time, midway through the first half we tried to make a tactical decision, in terms of changing out on the field with the players. We did that at half time and I thought it worked really well and it really was literally one-way traffic after that.
“I think the second half performance was typical of what we can achieve.
“The result was a kick in the teeth for us because they are the first team to complete the double over us. You have to give them some credit. I wasn’t involved in the first game but the player said to me before the game that ‘they battered us at the Keepmoat’ and it was looking like the same again at half time.
“They used their extra man in midfield well, it doesn’t matter what system you play, if you play like they did in certain areas you will cause problems.”
