Ferguson pleased to hit 50 points

8 April 2018

Darren Ferguson was pleased to see his side reach the 50-point mark as Rovers picked up a point on the road at Gillingham.

Rovers battled to a goalless draw at a blustery MEMS Priestfield Stadium on Saturday, but Ferguson felt their first half performance could have seen them pick up all three.
“Given the first half we had we feel we should be coming away from here with three points, even with the chances we had in the second period we should have won the game, we haven’t really been tested and we limited them to one shot on target,” he said.
“I thought we played very well in the first half, but we didn’t capitalise on the control and dominance we had over Gillingham. They’ve changed their shape and thrown two big lads up top, they went direct and caused us more of a problem.
“Steve Lovell has done a great job here, he’s made them a hard team to play against. But I’m delighted to get a point to reach that 50-point mark with seven games left to play, with five of them at home and we have to make that count.”
Rovers had the better opportunities to win the game, with chances from Mathieu Baudry and Alfie May among their best efforts, but Ferguson was happy to see the game out with an assured performance at the back in the second half.
“We’ll always look to improve, and we will always look to take positives out of these games, we’ve kept a clean sheet and we’ve looked solid at the back, I’m very pleased with our defensive performance,” he added.
“Our defensive line was excellent, we played the offside trap well, Luke McCullough protected them well and then I wanted to bring Andy Butler on just to freshen things up and make sure we had three big heads at the back to see it through.
“They grew in confidence as the game went on and they started to get a foot hold in the second half and they were dominant for parts of it, but we dug it out and got a good point on the road.”
