Rowe hitting his goals

3 January 2017

Tommy Rowe is on course to hit all his targets this season after the winner against Stevenage.

The Rovers No.10 scored the only goal with  minutes remaining on the clock, with his effort going in via a visiting defender.

That strike was the former Peterborough midfielder’s seventh of the Sky Bet League Two campaign so far, but he says the three points was the most important thing.

“The main thing was the win, getting it late on means so much and with the clean sheet as well, we’ve only conceded one goal in four games now,” said Rowe.

“We had to be patient to get the win, it was a very tough game after playing on Saturday.

“The gaffer said to us to keep to the game plan, we knew a chance would fall for us eventually.”

Following the loan signing of Conor Grant, Rowe insisted competition for places within the squad is something he thrives on.

“The strength in depth we have here is incredible, you’ve got to be on the top of your game week in, week out to make sure you stay in the team,” he added.

“It drives everyone on and I know that’s something the manager wanted to implement within the club.

“All the players here have the same ambition, we all want to go to that next level and you can’t take short cuts if you want to get there.”
