Alcock happy with creativity

6 March 2017

Craig Alcock was impressed with the chances Rovers created despite being held to a goalless draw at Crawley Town.

Rovers maintained their place at the top of the table and are four points clear of promotion rivals Plymouth Argyle with 11 games to go. 

But the defender was happy with a point and felt  the side would have been on the wrong side of score line against Crawley last season. 

“We created a lot of chances, which is important but at the end of the day it’s disappointing and it’s important that we pick ourselves up,” said Alcock.

“It was one of those days for us, I think the most important thing is we didn’t lose the game, and last season we would have done. 

“Thankfully we stuck at it and although 0-0 is not a fantastic result, it’s a point closer to where we want to be.”

Alcock missed the first three months of the season after sustaining an injury to an ankle, he has played across the backline and now looks settled at left-back.

“It was a disappointing start to the season for me with injuries in pre-season and I had to work hard to get back in, but that’s a testament to how good of a squad we have this season,” he added. 

“I don’t mind where I play as long as I am helping the team and we get the right result, that’s all that matter to be honest. 

“Niall Mason has been different class this season and he has shown how versatile he is by moving across the backline and now in midfield.”
