Moore gives credit to players

4 November 2020

Darren Moore felt his side deserved credit after they scored late to earn a 2-2 draw at AFC Wimbledon in Sky Bet League One.

James Coppinger’s injury-time strike earned Rovers a point at Plough Lane, and Moore says they kept going right to the end. 

He said: “When we went 2-1 down so late in the game we were fearing the worst, after having so much of the play it was good to make sure we didn’t lose it. 

“The determination and desire was there to get back in the game twice, for them to keep their focus was great to see. 

“Having said that we felt we probably should have had the game won before then, we had plenty of attempts on goal and had so much possession.” 

Rovers were the first team to take on the Dons at the new Plough Lane, and Moore says they handled the occasion well. 

He added: “I thought we came here and set our stall out to try and dominate the game throughout to pick up the three points. 

“Credit to Wimbledon because they stayed in the game and made it difficult for us by blocking shots and throwing bodies on the line. 

“We spoke about them coming back to Plough Lane and not getting involved with all that, we were just here to do our job and play the game.”
