Moore laments missed chances

15 December 2019

Darren Moore says Rovers will be working hard to get back to winning ways quickly as they suffered defeat on the road at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

Goals from Marcus Forss and Callum Reilly saw the Dons take three points at Kingsmeadow in Sky Bet League One, and Moore is already looking ahead to try and put things right next weekend.

“We have to get back onto the training pitch now and look to respond as quickly as possible, you can’t cry over spilt milk and we’re going to do our best to make sure we put things right next weekend,” he said.

“At the moment it just feels like we need that rub of the green that gets us that win so we can get back out there and get on a run, we have to go out there and get it and earn it, we’ll go again, we’ll work this week and we’re looking forward to being back at home.

“The positive thing for us now is that we’re getting bodies back into the squad as well, we’ve got Tom Anderson back from suspension, Jon Taylor came on and got half an hour, we got Niall Ennis on for a little bit, hopefully with a bit more strength we can kick on.”

Rovers lead at the break after Kwame Thomas headed in from a Reece James corner inside 12 minutes, but a 14-minute spell after the interval saw the hosts turn the game on its head, leaving Moore to lament missed chances from his side in the opening 45 minutes.

“We created so many chances, and to be honest we probably should’ve come in at the break with more than just the one goal, it just wasn’t to be though and it became a scrappy game in the second half,” he added.

“We set our stall out to come out and get the three points, if we don’t make those two mistakes then we come away with the win ourselves, we had a great first 45 minutes, we didn’t want the complacency to creep in, but we’ve lost our concentration.

“We’re bitterly disappointed with the two goals that we’ve given away, that’s what’s seen them win the game, they weren’t earnt by them and by us not capitalising on the chances we’ve had, and not seeing the game out, and it’s handed them the win.”
