Coppinger looking to Rochdale trip

10 September 2017

James Coppinger is glad Rovers have a game on Tuesday to get Saturday’s loss at Northampton Town out of their system.

Rovers were undone after conceding with just 21 seconds on the clock, then could not find an equaliser despite creating plenty of chances in the second period.

Coppinger said: “We move on to Tuesday. It’s always good to have a game so soon after a game like that, and we’ll look to bounce back.

“We’ve got four or five great strikers at the club, two or three who are coming through then Willo and John Marquis who have scored through their careers. There’s no doubt that we can score goals. We just need to do it quickly - we went close here in the second-half and it’s up to us to go to Rochdale on Tuesday and do it then.”

Coppinger was disappointed to leave Sixfields without a point, with Rovers having created plenty of chances in the second period - with Tommy Rowe and Ben Whiteman going particularly close.

He added: “It is frustrating to concede so early then dominate the game and create chances. There were not many clearcut chances, but in the end it was disappointing to come away with nothing.

“When you come away from home and put in a performance like we did collectively in the second half you expect to get something out of the game. We go away disappointed. We had a few corners and chances where it just didn’t fall for us.”
