Mitchell delighted with clean sheet

31 July 2022

Rovers goalkeeper Jonathan Mitchell was delighted to get his first clean sheet of the campaign on the opening day against Bradford City.

Rovers put on a strong defensive display that paid dividends in the end as Gary McSheffrey's side held promotion hopefuls Bradford City to a point. 

He said: “It was backs against the wall, but we embraced the challenge and kept a clean sheet so I am really happy with that.

“You could see the team spirit that we have. We all back and trust each other and I know it is only early doors but we think it is a good point.

“As a squad, we are really tight and work hard daily together.”

The shot stopper was full of praise for the team in front of him who put their bodies on the line to reduce the number of saves he had to make.

He added: “Bradford crossed the ball a lot, but we defended well as a unit and protected our box.

“There was a lot of blocking of shots and heading balls today which made my job easier because we worked collectively as a team to defend.

“We were confident we would get a clean sheet today and I am buzzing with that.”
