Biggins: We needed to capitalise on impressive first half

8 January 2023

Harrison Biggins believes Rovers not capitalising on their strong first half ultimately cost them the opportunity to take something away from the trip to league leaders Leyton Orient.

Rovers were the better side in the first half but fell to defeat courtesy of Theo Archibald’s impressive strike.

Biggins on how the game played out:

“It’s obviously disappointing to lose the game. In the first half we started really well, which we have done as of late. I feel like if we’d scored in the first half it could have been a completely different game. We were on top for large parts.

“In the second half we came out and the team that is sat top of the league changed formation to find a way into it. That’s a credit to us.

“We knew we were coming here needing our A-game, and in the first half we were really good. We didn’t manage to capitalise on it.

“There’s a lot to take from this game. Game by game and over the new year especially we’ve been getting better and better. We beat Carlisle, who are going really well, and we’ve come to the top of the league and really put on a good performance in the first half. That should give us a lot of belief.”

On the week ahead:

“We’ll move on quickly to Crawley away next weekend. Another opportunity to get some points and it’s a chance for us to climb the table. We really believe as a team that we can do it.”

On recent progress:

“We’ve taken he information on board that we’ve been given, but I think a lot of it is just down to belief. We took the information in quickly but it was about putting into performances.

“We’d been a bit inconsistent, which is something we’ve looked at. After back to back wins it’d have been good to come here and get a result but unfortunately it wasn’t the case.”
