Gary McSheffrey believes there are plenty of positives to take from his sides cup defeat to Bolton Wanderers.

Despite being on top for most of the first-half, Rovers found themselves 3-0 down at half-time before a headed effort in the second-half made the game finish 4-0 in favour of the away side. 

On the positives to take from the game:

“The first 25-minutes we were comfortably the better team.

“Our front two were a major threat and it was the most fluent we have been in possession this season.

“We just could not score. We’ve hit the post, Ethan Harrison’s had a one-on-one  and their goalkeepers made two good saves from Corie Cole.

“There was lots of positives.

“Only disappointing thing is when we concede we did not regroup how we would have hoped.”

On some of the younger players getting chances in the game:

“We had a young team with two U16s have been involved, five U17s and only four second years starting.

“It is all about learning and progressing so hopefully the youngsters getting this exposure will help them for the future and will benefit us going forward.

“The best performers regardless of age will always play. It’s about finding them individuals to get into the first-team.”
