Moore reflects on Ipswich defeat

28 February 2021

Darren Moore was left disappointed that Rovers didn’t use the ball more effectively as they fell to a frustrating 2-1 defeat against Ipswich Town.

Goals from Alan Judge and James Norwood put Ipswich 2-0 up despite Rovers dictating most of the play and while the visitors created plenty of chances, they were only able to find the back of the net once through Jon Taylor. 

"I felt we did enough to win the game, we had enough possession and chances, but we’ve let in two poor goals,” said Moore. 

“We were good with the ball, but we needed to be effective with the ball. 

“We had a large percentage of the possession – when they dropped off us, we played through them. When they tried to press us, we played around them.

"It was just the final touch in the box which eluded us and then the concentration at the other end which caught us out.” 

John Bostock made his third start for Rovers on Saturday playing an influential role in the middle of the park and Moore believes the midfielder will continue to improve with more game time. 

“I thought John dictated the game and gave them problems. He can feel pleased with his performance,” he added. 

“Everyone can see that he’s up to speed now. He’s just going to get stronger and stronger as the games go on and has the potential to be a really effective player at this level.”
