Grant McCann apologised to Rovers supporters after the ‘totally unacceptable’ 4-0 defeat at Newport County.
Rovers conceded three goals in the opening 22 minutes to give themselves as tremendous task as they hunted for the first league points of the season, leaving McCann thoroughly frustrated with the performance.
“It was not good enough - simple as that,” he said. “They were better than us in all departments.
“We lacked some serious energy. We’ve given them the first two goals and we had a mountain to climb after that.
“The first one was a clear mistake and so was the second one. What could have gone wrong went wrong today and I want to apologise to the fans because that is totally unacceptable.”
