Moore praises Rovers performance

8 March 2020

Darren Moore was pleased with his side’s performance as Rovers earned a 1-0 win over MK Dons.

Jacob Ramsey’s goal just after the hour mark was the difference and Rovers registered their sixth clean sheet away from home this season to ensure they left Milton Keynes with maximum points.

“I’m pleased with the three points because Stadium MK is a difficult arena,” said Moore.

“MK Dons have got a tremendous home record and you can see why it’s so impressive - they manage the ball really well. We knew we had to be patient and do our defensive work off the ball.

“It’s a creditable three points for the players.”

While Rovers started slowly, they put in an impressive second half display and Moore praised Ramsey who made no mistakes to make sure he capitalised on one of the match’s few chances.

“When I look back over the match, there was only really one chance and we took it,” said Moore

“In the first half, it felt like we were sitting back and waiting. At half time I asked for a bit more a bit more energy and intensity and a bit more game knowhow. We said let’s come out of here with no regrets and the second half was a lot, lot better.”

“Jacob can feel pleased with his afternoon’s work. He showed good control with his feet and he contributed with the goal. He’s got a great ability to arrive late in the box and when he does arrive, he gets good contact on the ball.”
