"We know we're better" - Evina

Defender fully focussed on bouncing back.

Full back Cedric Evina has said that the group “owe the fans” following the recent disappointing home performances.

Rovers’ 2-0 defeat to Evina’s former club Oldham on Saturday ensured Rovers are still yet to register a win on home turf this term.

“With the result at the weekend, you want the next game to come quickly so you can put it right. As it is, the two weeks can prove to be a drag on the boys because you can think about it over and over again,” he said.

“Normally, you have a chance to rectify things straight away but it does provide a chance to have a breather because we've had a hectic month with seven games so it’s a chance to have a rest.”

Rovers now enter the international break as Dean Furman, Luke McCullough and Theo Robinson will all represent their respective countries over the forthcoming week giving plenty of the squad time for recuperation – including Evina.

“I haven't trained because I’ve got a little knock but I’ve seen the boys train really hard this week and it’s been tough.

“We are trying to work hard and get things right. Obviously the weekend was a disappointing result for everyone and we've acknowledged that fact.

“We know we're better than what we've shown at home and, as a group, we feel we owe the fans something.”
