Moore pleased with impressive team performance

20 October 2019

Darren Moore praised a good team performance as Rovers became the first side to take all three points from Bristol Rovers since August.

Goals from Kieran Sadlier and Jon Taylor got Rovers back to winning ways after suffering two consecutive defeats in Sky Bet League One.

“We are really pleased with that response. I thought we got back to what we know, and that was a good, high-quality performance,” said Moore.

“We knew they’d be a good team, they’re in-form and an excellent team but we didn’t give them much time or room to implement their style of play. I thought we took the game away from them in terms of how we managed the ball and our good passing and good movement.”

“Looking at it, it was a good team performance and a very worthy three points.”

The visitors edged the opening exchanges but when Seny Dieng saved Tom Nichols’ penalty on the 25th minute, the momentum of the match swung firmly in Rovers favour.

“We were disappointed when the penalty claim went against us,” added Moore.

“Seny has been really good for us and he saved the penalty. Ultimately, that settled us down.

“After that moment, I could see us creating chances and causing them problems and it turned out that the game went that way.”
