Striker striving for end of season finale.Curtis Main has ramped up the intensity for the remainder of the season following Saturday’s comeback win.
Main was integral to a spirited second half performance by Rovers that saw them overturn a 1-0 deficit to earn a deserved three points against struggling Coventry City.
“We've gone in and there was a few choice words were used at half time and the players have come out and reacted how I think everybody felt we needed to and we got the early goal and were then on the front foot and there was only going to be one winner,” the striker said.
“The lads just said: “Look at yourselves and ask ‘are they better than you?’ We've gone in 1-0 down conceding a sloppy goal we haven't been outplayed or outclassed and thought 'Why can’t we turn it around?' and then we got the response.
“We just look at ourselves and know we are a good side and there’s a lot of talent in the side hard workers and everything you need so there’s no reason why we can’t challenge for the play offs.”
Main has recovered well from a serious knee injury disrupted his season to hit double figures and already has designs on scoring against Bradford City (again) after netting the winner in the reverse fixture at Valley Parade.
“It’s probably the first time since coming back from injury I've had a real good spell in the team and to come in and do a half decent job score some goals and get into double figures was pleasing and I've just been enjoying playing,” he said.
“I found it difficult coming in and out of the side not getting a run but this is football and these things happen.
“Now I feel good, like I said I've played the last few games I'm feeling good and feeling fit so hopefully continue with what I'm doing out there.
“The manager and I have had quite a few discussions, he's knows I'm really self critical and I want the best out of myself so he thinks sometimes I need to relax and not force it as he's says I've got the talent to do it.”
