Ferguson disappointed with Walsall defeat

22 October 2017

Darren Ferguson believes a lot of lessons can be learned from Rovers’ 3-0 defeat at home to Walsall in Sky Bet League One.

Three second half goals were enough to get Walsall the win, and the Rovers boss was disappointed with his side’s overall display.
“My job as a manager is to try and find the answer as that is our worst performance of the season, we had a great chance to get back to back league wins for the first time this season,” Ferguson said.
“The fans have stuck with us in the main as they’ve understood we’ve deserved more in some games but we didn’t deserve anything.
“I need to look at the whole situation and have a good think as to why this has happened, unfortunately we haven’t got another game for a week but that means we have longer to analyse the defeat.”
Having won their previous two home games, Ferguson felt Rovers missed a good opportunity to make it three victories in a row at the Keepmoat Stadium.
“We didn’t really create much and they were happy to sit in, credit to them as their game plan worked but we helped them a lot today,” he added.
“We were playing a team who hadn’t won in six, but I had to get into the players at half time about the lack of urgency.
“Having said that, Jon Whitney has done a great job there and he had them set up to play a certain way and his players took advantage once they went ahead.”
