Clean sheet delights Butler

13 March 2017

A clean sheet was the most pleasing aspect of Rovers’ 2-0 victory over Cheltenham Town according to Andy Butler, despite the defender opening the scoring at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Rovers have not conceded in back-to-back games for the first time this season, and also kept up their impressive unbeaten home league run, at the expense of Gary Johnson’s men.

But the club captain is keen to make sure that his side do not take games lightly and keep pushing towards the end goal.

“Two clean sheets on the bounce for us now and it is something that we want to improve on and I think we have lately,” said Butler.

“We conceded too many goals early on in the season, and it’s something we have worked on tirelessly in training,  it’s just getting that understanding between the players.

“No-one is going to take their foot off the gas, we know where we are now and what we have to do and we have to concentrate on ourselves on not on other sides.”

The defender also highlighted how important the home fans have been to their success at the Keepmoat this season and how it can be uncomfortable for visiting teams.

“We want the home fans to see how good we are playing at the minute, get more people into the ground and make teams not want to come here,” he added. 

“It’s a real fear factor as they know it’s going to be difficult for them to play how they want to play, so it’s half the job done really.”
