Olowu insists 'all the lads believe we'll get it done'

6 March 2022

Joseph Olowu insists the Rovers squad fully believe they can achieve what they have set out to do in the final weeks of the season.

Rovers fell to a 4-0 defeat at Cheltenham Town which saw their recent positive run of form brought to an end.

But Olowu has called on supporters to retain the faith they can collect the points they require over the final nine games of the campaign.

On the manner of the defeat:

“It’s disappointing and the result is not what we came for or what we put in so much work for this week.

“We wanted to show a lot more on the ball and a lot more off the ball with our application and work rate.

“Training was spot on this week in terms of how we took information on and replicated it.

“But unfortunately it didn’t translate into the game.

“We didn’t start out on the front foot and take our game to them.

“We can’t be giving ourselves the hills to climb up any more.

“We have got nine games to go and we need to be starting on the front foot, getting in front and putting the pressure on the other team instead of it being the other way around.

On the need for supporters to stick with the team:

“Off this one game, I don’t think they should be too dispirited.

“We’ve still got a lot to give.

“There’s still nine games left to play and 27 points to play for, so it’s all still there for us to do.

“The work might seem like there’s a lot but we have the players, the attitude and the mentality to get it done.

“I believe we’re going to get it done and all the lads in there believe we’re going to get it done.”
