Moore pleased with win at Swindon

17 January 2021

Darren Moore was pleased to end a tough week with three points on the road at Swindon Town in Sky Bet League One.

Fejiri Okenabirhie scored twice to put Rovers in control, before Hallam Hope’s second-half strike for the home side proved to be nothing more than a consolation. 

He said: “We missed a training session due to the snow and we knew it would be a difficult game, but we started really well and got an early goal. 

“We knew they’d come out second-half and go for it a bit more, but I thought to a man we stood up to the challenge. 

“Our decision making when we had time on the ball was good, we were a little bit rusty but that was to be expected.” 

Okenabirhie’s double at the County Ground took his tally for the season to nine in all competitions, and Moore has been impressed with the forward’s all-round performances. 

He added: “I’m delighted for Fej, he took his goals really well and they were two finishes that any striker would be proud of. 

“We always say with Fej if he gets in and gets a chance he’s more likely to score than not, and his goals gave us a really important cushion. 

“His work rate throughout the whole game was brilliant, he is improving as a player and has the ability to play well different positions.”
