Moore has no complaints with result

23 February 2020

Darren Moore said his team didn't do enough in Saturday's defeat at Shewsbury Town.

Dave Edwards scored the only goal 14 minutes from time, and Moore felt his side were uncharacteristically off it at Montgomery Waters Meadow.

“It was a scrappy game and I’m disappointed really because when I look back, we just didn’t do enough to win it. We didn’t seem right when we were on the ball and we’ve come away with nothing,” he said.

“They went man for man on us and that sort of stopped us from doing what we wanted to do, we didn’t have enough cleverness about us to change it. We had a couple of chances but we weren’t ruthless enough.

“We switched off late on and conceded a sloppy goal, but we’ll learn from it. We’ll go back and we’ll work hard to put things right. We get back in and start working towards the game next weekend now.”

Moore will be looking for a swift response when Rovers host Wycombe Wanderers next weekend. He says there are players around the team that will be itching to get the side back to winning ways, whilst also praising Aston Villa loanee Jacob Ramsey.

“What I will say is I thought young Jacob was probably the best player on the pitch. He’s only 18 and for him to put on a performance like he did was pleasing for me. He was unfortunate to hit the post,” he added.

“The chances were there for us but I just felt we were off it, but myself, the boys, the staff we have to accept that and move on quickly. In terms of honesty, commitment, endeavour, I’d never doubt that of this squad.

“The team is wide open for places once again and players will be looking to get into the side and start. I select the team off the best performances in the week and once they get on the training ground, I know they’ll be keen to try and put things right.”
