WATCH | McCann reflects on defeat at MK Dons

26 August 2023

Grant McCann was left frustrated as Rovers returned home empty handed despite a much-improved showing at MK Dons.

McCann labelled the performance the best of the season to date in the league but was left bemoaning mistakes as Rovers could not fight their way back level from two goals down.

Luke Molyneux curled in an excellent finish in the second half to halve the deficit but time ran out on the comeback.

McCann said: “I thought we were excellent. It’s obviously hurtful standing here and again we’ve give our fans zero points. But I thought as a performance it’s the best we’ve been this season in the league.

“It was very much in control, lots of opportunities, lots of chances. I know the more we create those opportunities, the goals will start flowing for us.

“Honestly, I couldn’t fault the performance. What I can fault and can’t legislate for is the individual errors which are costing us goals at the minute. That’s the truth and the reality at the moment.

“But we win, lose and draw together. We’re here to help and support these players if and when they need it. As a team I’m really pleased with the performance and that gives us something to build from.

“Last week against Notts County I saw a team that couldn’t get back into the game. This week I saw us fighting, playing in the right way and creating opportunities but it just didn’t come for us.”
