Mitchell on his penalty save and defeat to Charlton

27 March 2022

Jonathan Mitchell was so close to being the hero for Rovers but ended up on the beaten side against Charlton Athletic.

The goalkeeper saved a penalty from the Addicks’ Conor Washington as well as producing a string of other vital stops prior to Rovers falling behind in the only goal of the game.

Mitchell on how the game panned out:

“Unfortunately we couldn’t get a goal at the end to get the point.

“We keep fighting for each other.

“We were under a bit of pressure and we were probably lucky to go in at 0-0.

“In the second half we settled and we had some opportunities at the end.”

On his penalty save from Conor Washington:

“You do your homework beforehand to give you the best possible chance of saving it.

“You don’t want to face a penalty but you do your homework so you’re doing everything you possibly can.

“He’s taken quite a few over his career so there was lots to look at.”

On his run of starts for Rovers:

“I’m massively appreciative for getting a run of games, especially with the way it started for me.

“I got another chance at Sunderland away and I’m really happy to be able to kick on.”

On Rovers’ chances of survival:

“Anything is possible.

“What is the point of doing anything in life if you don’t think you can achieve anything.

“It’s a difficult task but we keep fighting until the end.

“When you’re down there, things don’t tend to go your way but you have to keep believing.

“We have to keep believing we can get what we need.

“We’re all working for each other and grafting away for the club.”
