Whiteman delighted with win over Lincoln

1 November 2020

Ben Whiteman says the Rovers dressing room were delighted with the 1-0 victory over Lincoln City.

The skipper fired his side to victory in Sky Bet League One with a brilliant volley, and says it was reward for a solid team display. 

He said: “ The lads are over the moon with the victory, everybody played their part in a really good win which is pleasing. 

“The back four were outstanding, we knew Lincoln are a good team and they would have spells in possession so it was about us being resolute. 

“Some teams come to play and others to nullify us, it was a great game of football and both teams passed the ball well.” 

Whiteman explained how Rovers have been going about their business and trying to generate their own motivation while games are being held behind closed doors. 

He added: “The season has been strange so far, training is different o what we’re used to and that’s something we have to get used to. 

“We’ve all said that it isn’t the same without the fans here, all we can do is keep doing the business until they’re back with us. 

“You’ve got to try and create your own atmosphere, it’s hard but it’s something you have to do when things aren’t going your way.”
