Midfielder Herbie Kane has been working on his finishing in training after scoring his first goals for the club in Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Chorley in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup.
Kane bagged his first senior brace as Rovers had to come from behind on two occasions at Victory Park, but the on-loan Liverpool man says as long as he is helping out the team, that is all that matters.
“I have been working on my finishing a lot after training, working on the way I strike the ball and thankfully I managed to get two in this game,” he said.
“It didn’t matter how I scored, all that was important was to get on the score sheet and as long as it helps the team out, that is all that matters.
“When I was younger I was a goalscorer, I was always trying to score and assist when I was first starting out and it was good to get back amongst the goals.”
Strikes from Josh O’Keefe and Courtney Meppen-Walter saw the Magpies lead twice in the game, but Kane says Rovers shown great resilience to get themselves back into the affair.
“Chorley made it difficult for us, we had to dig in to try and unlock their defence and we managed to do it twice, possibly on another day we would have scored more than that,” he added.
“We are disappointed that we didn’t come away with the win, but we showed good resilience to get something out of the game and it shows the strong mentality that we have in the dressing room.
“The replay will obviously be a difficult one as they will play similar to the way they have here, but we are confident and we want to get ourselves into the next round of the competition.”
