Jacob Ramsey was happy to be the man on the end of a good team goal which secured three points on the road at Milton Keynes on Saturday.

Ramsey scored midway through the second half to ensure Rovers picked up the win at Stadium MK, and the man on-loan from Aston Villa was pleased with how he took his goal.

“I’d had a chance earlier on in the second half when I got one-on-one with the keeper but the defender managed to get back and block the shot, but it was some good play down the right, Jon Taylor’s pulled it back and I’ve scored with a first time finish,” he said.

“I was pleased with how I took my goal, it was a good finish, if there’s one thing about this team it’s that they’re always going to create chances, if I don’t score with my first one I’ll look to score with my second.

“It was a good feeling getting another goal, and it’s even better when it’s in front of the away fans as well, it was a good team goal with some good play early on and I was happy to finish it off.”

Ramsey’s third goal since joining on loan in January ensured Rovers made it back-to-back wins in Sky Bet League One, and he felt the effort from everyone in the team after the break helped them to get the three points over the line.

“It was a difficult game, we didn’t see too much of the ball in the first half and we only had one really chance just before the break, the gaffer said about getting more possession in the second half and take our chances which we did,” he added.

“We came out after half-time and we wanted to make sure we stopped them from playing, we stuck together and the intensity was miles better, we all got each other through it and deserved to win in the end.

“We needed all 11 players on the pitch to help get us over the line, and Seny pulled off a good save at the end as well, we’re all buzzing to respond with back-to-back wins, but we’ll be looking to make that three in a row next weekend.”
