A game of fine margins for Butler

10 March 2021

Andy Butler felt the fine margins went against Rovers in the defeat to Crewe Alexandra in Sky Bet League One.

Mikael Mandron’s second-half strike secured a 1-0 win for the home side, and the manager was frustrated with the result. 

He said: “I felt at half-time that we’d caused our own problems and that showed with the goal, you can see why Crewe are 11 unbeaten at home now. 

“We had a couple of half chances late on, a couple of balls flashed across the box but it wasn’t to be. 

“I think a draw would have been a fair result, we cancelled each other out for the majority of the game so we have to regroup and go again on Saturday.” 

Rovers were left without a recognised striker on the night with Fejiri Okenabirhie and Omar Bogle both absent, and Butler says they had to make the best of a difficult situation. 

He added: “It’s never easy without a recognised striker on the pitch, we never really threatened them and they were a bit too comfortable. 

“We allowed the forward lads to rotate and try to get into good areas but we couldn’t get the last ball right.”
