McSheffrey: we dug deep

21 August 2022

Gary McSheffrey was pleased to see his side dig deep once again to beat Salford City in Sky Bet League Two.

Kyle Hurst’s double turned the game around for Rovers after falling behind to Brandon Asante’s early opener at the Eco-Power Stadium.

On the performance:

“We started the game badly and looked way off it, we were keen to back Tuesday’s win up with a good performance but they had too much for us for about 20 minutes.

“We were getting caught on the ball and looked a bit like rabbits in the headlights, we changed the shape due to the injuries and found a way to get back in it.

“Before the goal we gained territory, had a couple of efforts and a few corners which helped swing the momentum in our favour.”

On Hurst’s first senior goals:

“I’m delighted for Hursty, he’s got his two goals and looks like a really exciting player. He’s been working on his end product and it’s paid off.

“Once he got a goal you could see the belief with his second, the shackles were off him a little bit and he found power within his finishing.

“The first one was an unbelievable strike, he’s done well and got us back in it and then been clinical when we needed him to be.”

On building on a good start to the season:

“We’re unbeaten without reaching the levels we’re capable of, we’ll keep pushing and improving while finding a way to win games.

“We’re coming up against good sides and dealing with things that are thrown at us, we feel we’ve got players that can stick to the plan we set.

“We’ve got good habits and we know we’ve not cracked it yet, but we feel like we’re on the right track.”
