Darren Moore believes fans saw the first signs of what his Rovers team are capable of in the side’s 3-2 win over Fleetwood Town on Saturday.
An injury time own goal as well as a league debut goal for Cameron John and a sublime goal by James Coppinger helped Rovers on the way to the first three points of the season but Moore believes there are still improvements to be made.
“You want the performances to be right and when the performances come, you get the right results. I thought on Saturday that the players acquitted themselves really well,” said Moore.
“We showed signs of what we’re trying to achieve, and we did that against an excellent team with good players. We stood up to the test and came through it while trying to keep to those principals that we’re setting in place.
“I’ve asked for the fans to be patient because they’re coming with us on this journey and they’ll begin to see the fruits of what we’re about. We obviously enjoyed those plaudits but that’s done and gone now. We turn our focus to the next game.”
Moore has been at the club for six weeks and has been pleased with the progress he has seen in his players so far.
“The performances this season have been good in the sense that we’ve battled, we’ve worked hard, we’ve stood up physically and at times but on Saturday we were able to amalgamate the physical and technical side of it, I was really pleased with that,” he added.
“The players have taken everything we’ve told them on board, and they keep showing us the hunger to learn more. We’re trying to continue to build every day.
“They don’t give up - I keep seeing that from this team. That fight, that spirit and that willingness to keep going all the way until the end - we’ve got a group of players who are working extremely hard for this football club.”
