Andrew: We'll put it right at Gillingham

Danny Andrew says Rovers will look to pick themselves straight back up when they head to Gillingham on Saturday.

Rovers were punished by a clinical Fleetwood side on Boxing Day. Andrew said the players were hurting after the loss and will use the frustration at Highbury as motivation to improve at Priestfield.

The left-back said: "It's three mistakes that have cost us really which is disappointing for us all, it was a frustrating day for us and we're upset to lose the way we did.

"We'll never go out to have a flat performance, we'll always go out to give 100% whenever we play, sometimes though things don't work out and unfortunately things just didn't fall for us here.

"It's hard to be anything but flat after a game like that, but we'll pick ourselves up and go again at the weekend. We know that it'll be another tough game, another tough place to go, but we need to go out and get a positive result."

Rovers now face two games in four games, starting with Saturday's trip to Gillingham before a return home to host Rochdale on New Year's Day, and Andrew believes the games coming thick and fast can only help the side quickly regain their previous good form.

He added; "We've been in some good form recently, barring here of course, but we've got plenty of games coming up and we're going to have to go all out to turn it around as quickly as possible.

"There are a lot of teams in this league that are very physical sides, you have to have both sides of the game to be successful, both playing football the right way as well as those physical attributes. This time of the year is always a difficult period, the pitches are getting tougher to play on and games turn into more of a battle each week."
