McSheffrey focused on Rovers claiming big result at Fleetwood Town

18 March 2022

Gary McSheffrey wants Rovers to get on the front foot as they head to Fleetwood Town for another crunch Sky Bet League One clash.

Rovers are looking for a return to winning ways that would give their survival hopes a considerable shot in the arm.

And they will face a Fleetwood side desperate for the points also following a five match run of defeats.

McSheffrey on bouncing back from defeat:

“We’ve dissected our last couple of games, reviewed them, gone over the things we feel we should have improved on, and what we need to do to move forward.

“But they’ve gone so there’s no point in dwelling and being negative about things. We just need to look to try to be positive, kick on and control what we can in the future.

“We need a bit more quality and a bit more belief.

“Ultimately they’re working hard. They responded well last week in terms of getting on the ball and dominating possession, without creating clear cut chances.

“We just need to be a bit more on the front foot, with more aggression in our play, and more relentless in how we want to attack and score goals.

On the need for greater firepower:

“You’re always hopeful and think positive that you can go and get a result.

“What we can’t do is take a team like Fleetwood lightly. I watched their game with Sunderland, and the Wycombe game.

“They were really unlucky to lose against Wycombe like they did and they could have been one or two up inside the first ten minutes.

“They got ahead against Sunderland, missed a good chance to go two up, got a man sent off and were turned over at the end again.

“They’re a good team, with good attackers. They’ve lost late on in games lately and sometimes that happens with a young team.

“But what also happens with a young team is that they’re fearless.

“They’ve got good wingers, good strikers and they work hard in midfield areas so it’s not going to be an easy game.

“It’s a game where both teams will be going in thinking they can win it.”
