Wellens rues missed chances

17 October 2021

Richie Wellens spoke to the media after his side were beaten by Wycombe Wanderers in Sky Bet League One.

Early goals from Anthony Stewart and Adebayo Akinfenwa sealed the three points for the Chairboys, while Jordy Hiwula rattled the bar and Tiago Cukur forced a good save from David Stockdale as Rovers searched in vain for a way back into the match.

On conceding early:

“It was a terrible start in terms of allowing the corner to go to the back post and they made the first contact.

“We made the mistake of wrestling with Akinfenwa but we made the point before the game you can’t win that battle.

“My goalkeeper hasn’t had a save to make after their second goal and the game probably went flat late on because of the experience they have.”

On missed chances:

“We made enough opportunities to get back in the game but we didn’t manage to take them.

“We need the players to grab the game by the scruff of the neck and be an influence vocally to those around them.

“Wycombe are good at what they do and anybody who finishes above them will get promoted.”
