Moore backs Rovers to turn corner

Darren Moore is keen to see his side move on quickly after they were pegged back late on against Accrington Stanley in Sky Bet League One.

The visitors levelled eight minutes before the end of 90 minutes on Saturday after Offrande Zanzala got on the end of a late corner, and Moore is certain his side can get over the hurdles that have come their way recently.

“You’re always disappointed to concede one from a set-piece, especially when it could’ve otherwise been ruled out, but we have to take it on the chin and we move on quickly, I said to the players that while we haven’t won, at least we haven’t lost it either,” he said.

“We have to keep harping on with those messages, this is a young squad that will learn from what they go through in a game, we have to keep going and we can’t cry over spilt milk, we have to maintain and keep the focus.

“The only way you can change your own fortune is to keep going, keep believing and keep sticking together, we’re going to keep getting over those difficult hurdles that keep going in front of us, and that’s testament to the players.”

Jon Taylor put Rovers ahead before Stanley’s late leveller at the Keepmoat Stadium, and Moore is sure that his tight-knit squad can come together and secure some vital points over this festive period.

“There’s so much spirit, so much togetherness, and you’ve seen that when we scored the goal here, we have to keep that going, keep on working hard and doing what we’ve been doing as we head into this busy Christmas period,” he added.

“My mentality is to be in the game with the players, I kick every ball with them, every moment I live with them, I see the game as it is, we want to stick together, keep the focus, keep doing what we’re doing and keeping the focus.

“We’re doing the hard bit which is creating the chances, we keep getting in those areas, now we have to move on to this Peterborough game, we have to work for our moment, to try and build some momentum and that’s my message to the players.”
