Mature approach impresses Ferguson

13 August 2017

Darren Ferguson hailed the maturity of his side after they recorded an impressive 3-1 victory at Blackburn Rovers.

Second-half goals from John Marquis, James Coppinger and Alfie May sealed the points which left Rovers sixth in Sky Bet League One.

Ferguson said: “I thought we deserved the victory, our performance was a mature and solid one. We had to be disciplined about what we did, both on and off the ball.

“There was a real maturity about the team, every player knew what they were doing. The players look confident and fit.”

Rovers held their own in an opening period which was even, but stepped up a gear in the second period.

Ferguson added: “In the first half they didn’t cause us too many problems, both sides kept the ball well without too many chances for either team and we were clinical in the second half. I know there were a couple of mistakes, but you have still got to punish them.

“It was quite a tactical first half, but once the first goal went in we were very clinical. I was delighted throughout the game.

“We’ve started the season well and probably should have won all three games. But I’ve no doubt Blackburn will be right up there because the quality will come through, but we knew we could cause them problems and we did.”
