Rowe Sets Standard

20 April 2016

Midifelder says others must stand up and be counted in last three games of season.

Goalscorer Tommy Rowe said that others must follow his lead in chipping in with goals as Rovers look to haul themselves out of relegation trouble.

Rowe opened the scoring in a 1-1 draw with Chesterfield at Proact Stadium last night and the Wolves loanee wants greater support for striker Andy Williams.

“A lot of us miss good, important chances out there and we need to take the pressure off players like 'Willo' who works so hard in the channels and holding it up well,” he said.

“If it doesn’t come off for him then other players have got to fill in and get goals.

“Luckily for me I went and scored, I probably could have had another goal as could a few of the other lads but there’s no pressure on Andy to score.

“It’s one of those spells for him, he got a goal on Saturday and I’m sure he’ll score more between now and the end of the season.”

The hard earned point against the Spireites inched Rovers closer to safety but they still need to bridge a five point gap with only three games remaining.

“It’s a point and it will only be a good point if we win the next three games; we know what we need to do now,” said Rowe.

“The performances have to be high and at a good level because if we are to get the results, the performances have to be up there. Hopefully a little bit of luck will change for us but we focus now on Saturday as we’re at home again after last week’s great home win.

“We did the right things and we’ll take the positives from it and go in to Saturday which is a massive game for us.”
