May and Sterling off the mark

John Schofield pleased for strikers Alfie May and Kazaiah Sterling after both got off the mark in Rovers' Leasing.com Trophy win over Lincoln City.

Sterling and May both scored after Cameron John’s equaliser as Rovers came from behind to defeat the Imps 3-1.

“As a striker, you want to score goals. People will always talk about how well you’re doing for the team but you want goals. To get off the mark is fantastic for Kazaiah and Alfie May,” said Schofield. 

“May is up and running and full of confidence at the moment. Like I said, strikers want to score goals so he’ll be happy.

“All the goals we’ve scored today were good and showed great athleticism. We’re really happy with the way we played and obviously we’re scoring goals which is always good.”

Darren Moore made just two changes to his side that had defeated the Imps ten days earlier in the League and Schofield believes that victory in both games has helped build momentum.

“The lads have gone 10 days without a game – barring an in house game on Saturday – so we’re just trying to build up a bit of momentum and you only get that from playing games,” he added.

“The season has been a little bit stop start so far so that’s been taken into consideration when the team was chosen for Tuesday’s game. The match gave us chance to get game time into the players.

“I think the attitude and application of the players has never been questioned. You’ve got to remember in this competition you’re only six or seven games from Wembley. Financially, winning these games can be very lucrative.”
