Rovers hitman hinted at big win and says side are sometimes 'untouchable'.Nathan Tyson registered his eighth goal of the season last night against Crawley Town in an emphatic 5-0 win which he said was coming.
Tyson’s delightful lob was sandwiched in the middle of goals from Andy Butler and Richie Wellens, then Harry Forrester and Curtis Main as Rovers had five different goalscorers to boot.
“I’ve always said to the lads where I’ve seen us play and there’s going to be a game where we win by five or six and the way that we’re playing, when we play like that, is untouchable and we can be the best in the league at it,” suggested Tyson.
“I think over recent weeks we’ve struggled in front of goals and now the rewards are paying off for the hard work. We’ve come down here and worked hard, stuck to the game plan and it’s paid off.
“We can be inconsistent though and we’re struggling with it. We’ve been inconsistent in front of goals and in parts of the season, we’ve been inconsistent at the back but today for it to all come together and we’ve ticked all the boxes means it was a good day at the office.”
Tyson currently tops the Rovers goalscoring charts and the result now leaves Rovers with a neutral goal difference, just three points outside the top six places.
“We had plenty of chances and the keeper’s made some great saves and I feel for them really because it’s hard when you’re on a bad run and at the bottom of the table,” he said.
“You’re thinking ‘caution’ and for me I said this could be a banana skin and you can’t think it’s going to be easy because they’re on a bad run and you have to treat them with respect because they’re fighting for their lives.”
Tyson and his teammates will be in action when Rovers host old Conference adversaries Yeovil Town at Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday.
