John Bostock felt there were positives to take from the performance against Sheffield Wednesday in Sky Bet League One.
Bostock made his first league start of the campaign at Hillsborough, and believes Rovers are getting closer to where they need to be.
On the team’s development:
“We’re a team that is growing, there have been a lot of obstacles to overcome in pre-season so it’s taking us time to put all the building blocks in place.
“It’s night and day compared to the Wimbledon performance, and although we lost there are a lot of positives to take from it.
“It hurts coming away with nothing from a game where we felt we were the better team for large parts of it.”
On where they can improve:
“The gaffer has been very clear on the way he wants us to play, and like anything it’s going to to take time to be at it’s best.
“We showed in parts that we can pull apart a team that is fancied by many to be at the top end of the table.
“We made it difficult for them and then the next step is to convert that into chances and goals.”
On playing alongside Ethan Galbraith:
“He came in yesterday and was really quiet, then goes and puts in such a good performance on his professional debut.
“It’s nice to have him here because he’s got a massive future in the game, I enjoyed playing alongside him and hopefully we can develop that relationship.
“I remember older professionals speaking to me when I was his age so I want to help him while he’s here.”
