Wellens pleased with Pompey point

22 August 2021

Richie Wellens was pleased with his side’s performance in the goalless draw against Portsmouth in Sky Bet League One.

Rovers earned their first point of the campaign at the Keepmoat Stadium, and the manager says it’s something to build on.

On the way his side played on the front foot:

“We were outstanding for 45 minutes and should have been in front, towards the end they could have won it but we held our own.

“They came in here in good form and grew in confidence, but we went toe-to-toe for the full game. 

“Our team faced the music and got on the front foot, I think everybody performed well.”

On the atmosphere generated by the supporters:

“It’s the first day where I’ve felt like a proper Doncaster Rovers manager. 

“I went outside before the game to speak to the supporters in the fan park, I felt like I was Noel Gallagher walking on stage.

“I was a bit embarrassed having lost the first three league games but I wanted to interact with the fans and I really enjoyed it.”
