Biggins says Rovers must be pleased with 'great' Orient point

9 October 2022

Harrison Biggins insists Rovers must see the draw with Leyton Orient as a good point collected.

The midfielder scored his first goal for the club to rescue a point after Rovers were comfortably second best in the first half.

Biggins says credit must be given for Rovers’ second half response.

On how the game panned out:

“I think it was a game of two halves, with the first half being obviously difficult for us.

“We didn’t get up to the ball well enough. We conceded a great goal to be fair. 

“But the second half was much better. We got after them, we were aggressive and we started creating chances.

“We got together at half time as a team and just said we’ve got to give it a right go.

“We did the nasty part of the game really well. We battled really well.

“We’re going to sit and look at this one as a great point against the top of the league who have only lost once this season.”

On scoring his first Rovers goal:

“It seems to have taken a while. It was a great ball in from Knoyley and my eyes lit up when it came in. Thankfully it hit the back of the net.

“I saw Reo going to go to the front post where I was going to go myself so I thought I didn’t want to make the same run. I sort of backed off a little bit and as I did, it all just fell into place.

“It’s funny because I’ve had a couple of them in training, probably closer, and I’ve missed.

“Thankfully when it matters it’s gone in.”

On adding more goals to his game:

“I said when I signed in the summer. Last year I think I got five and I wanted to add to that and start making it a big part of my game.

“Unfortunately so far this season, it’s not fell that way but hopefully this is the first of many.”

On playing higher up the pitch:

“I did that a few times last year. I don’t mind it. I like getting forward.

“Thankfully I got on the end of a cross. Wherever I play, I’m going to be the same person, the same player and try to bring what I can to the game.

“Someone has got to do that job, whether it’s me or three or four others.”

On his own form:

“I’m really enjoying it. I just want to play as many games as I can for this club.

“I started the season and then came out for a few games which made me miss playing. I really wanted to get back in and I’ve done that in the last two.

“We had some great results at the start of the season and the team didn’t change a lot. As results dropped off, there has been a few changes.

“But everyone is up for the challenge and still bubbly on the training ground, wanting to come and work hard.”

On the support the team receives:

“The fans have been different class. Obviously they’re going to get frustrated at times snd show their opinion.

“On the whole this season, they’ve been great. They’ve stood by us and I’m sure they’ll continue to do so.”
