McSheffrey takes positives from second-half display

8 December 2021

Gary McSheffrey spoke to the media after the 2-1 defeat at home to Oxford United in Sky Bet League One.

James Henry’s late winner left Rovers empty handed after Branden Horton’s leveller looked to have secured a point.

On getting back into the game:

“First-half we were poor, and didn’t look brave enough to try and get on the ball when the opportunity came.

“I was proud of the second-half performance, the boys rolled their sleeves up and gave it everything.

“The situation we were in being 1-0 down against a good team it would have been easy for us to go under, but we reacted well and got ourselves back in it.”

On continuing to believe:

“I spoke to the lads and they’re obviously gutted, they’ve played some high pressure football on young shoulders this season.

“We’re slowly getting some numbers back in the group and I saw enough second-half to show that with enough belief there are enough games to turn this around.”
