Andrew on success from free-kicks

17 April 2019

Danny Andrew has revealed he and Ali Crawford regularly spend extra time on the training pitches perfecting their set-piece technique.

The left-back grabbed Rovers’ second goal in Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle, the second straight home game where he has struck with a direct free-kick.

“Ali Crawford and I work a lot on the set-pieces in training and we’re always staying on after to practise,” said Andrew.

“Luckily another one has come off for me, I think the keeper is expecting me to go into the opposite corner and I’ve managed to catch him out.”

Confidence is high among the players after four straight wins, and Andrew has been impressed with the quick starts which saw early goals in the wins over Bristol Rovers, Walsall and Argyle set Rovers up for comfortable wins. 

“Earlier on in the season we were more of a team that really put sides to the sword later on in the game but we’re a side with a lot of energy across the board and the great starts we have had recently have continued,” he added.

“The second goal really killed the game off for us really and it did come at a key time, we then knew after the break that if we kept things solid at the back and we kept a clean sheet we’d be able to get the job done.”
