Point gained in tricky conditions for Ferguson

19 November 2017

Manager Darren Ferguson was delighted with his Rovers side after they gained a well-deserved point on the road against Fleetwood Town despite tricky conditions on the Fylde coast.

Uwe Rosler’s side, play-off semi-finalists in 2016/17, proved to be a stern test for Ferguson’s men, but he was happy with the way his side came through the game.
"We were solid, disciplined and very well organised, it was a very tight game with two very well organised teams, but we feel that we had the better chances in the game and we could have three points out of that,” Ferguson said.
“We almost got caught out in the first half, but we dealt with them well and in the second half we had three great opportunities to get the win, we’re unlucky not to get the win but it’s not a bad result.
“The wind played a big part as it normally does here, but we’ve kept a clean sheet and we’re looking good at both ends of the pitch, it’s something we’re working on and we are improving.”
John Marquis and Rodney Kongolo both went close in the closing stages of the game, but Ferguson was happy with the way his side ground out a point on the road, and he will be hoping that his men can take their good form into the next few games.
“You’ve seen two sets of players that gave everything today, and that was a team that made the play-offs last season and they’ll expect to be there again this season, so it’s a good point on reflection,” he said.
“We need the game to open up and if we get the first goal then we can make a difference and we have to get positive results, but we have been more consistent and we are coming up against some tough sides in the next few weeks.
“I’ve got some good players on my bench, and there’s players that have played a lot of games too, I’ve got a lot of options but we will make sure we recover properly ahead of Tuesday night.”
