Wellens: Fans played huge part in MK Dons victory

3 October 2021

Richie Wellens felt Rovers fans played a huge part in his side's 2-1 win against a high-flying MK Dons team.

Tommy Rowe and Tiago Cukur were both on the scoresheet for Rovers as they ended the visitors' nine game unbeaten run.

On the reaction from the Ipswich game:  

“Everyone at the club has worked hard since Tuesday’s defeat to Ipswich Town. We have been positive and the training sessions have been really good.  

“MK Dons are a really good team in this division and bringing on proven players of the quality of Mo Eisa shows that. So for us to go head-to-head with them was a big positive. 

“Our home form is good, we’ve played four and got seven points. 

“In football you have to have the belief. It is always a work in progress. What I have learnt from Tuesday is that we have a group of players that care. We have a great group of players and staff who really want the best for this football club. 

“The supporters stuck with us on Saturday even at 1-1, which was brilliant. Our supporters helped us.” 

On Tiago Cukur getting off the mark and other player performances: 

“Tiago will grow in confidence from his goal. He’s only 18-years-old and has played a lot for us in a short space of time and travelled a lot and that can affect a player.  

“Ben Close majorly improved from Tuesday night and I thought he was the best player on the pitch and was unfortunate not to get on the scoresheet after his chance in the first-half came off the bar.  

“We deserved the win because of our character. We ground out a performance and that was brilliant for everyone at the football club.”
