“Stand up and be counted”

2 March 2016

Nathan Tyson gives a very honest assessment of last night’s defeat to Swindon saying the team must now stand up and be counted.

Ten men Rovers suffered a 2-0 defeat to Swindon Town last night thanks to a brace from Jonathan Obika. Nathan Tyson captained the side in the absence of James Coppinger and Paul Keegan, and the striker stated his disappointment saying the side now have to show real character on Saturday against Shrewsbury.

“We are all very disappointed,” he said.

“As we find ourselves in a sticky situation at the moment and we now have to work extremely hard and keep on going.

“Every single person has to show what they’re about. We won’t lose each other in the dressing room, that will never happen but we are going to have to demand more from each other as players.

Tyson went on to state his desire to perform and grind out results as we enter the final 13 games of the season.

“We’ve got to go out there and be nasty on Saturday, it’s a huge game. The least I can do is run and run for 90 minutes and put in all my effort for this team. I believe we can dig out results, but we have to stand up and be counted.

“I want to be a winner and I have to keep fighting.”

Tyson was also quick to praise the Rovers supporters and thanked them for their continued backing.

“We all want to thank the fans for travelling so far, they’ve been just brilliant. They are so important to us and we will really need them on Saturday.”
