Mixed feelings for Lavery after first Rovers goal

22 March 2023

Caolan Lavery admitted his first goal for the club came with a tinge of disappointment as Rovers failed to hold on for the win at Crawley Town.

The striker flicked home a header to put Rovers ahead at the break but the hosts grabbed an equaliser in the later stages.

Lavery on how the game played out:

“It was nice to open my account for Doncaster but disappointing that we couldn’t hold on and get the win. I thought we held on well and defended well as a group but unfortunately we conceded at the end. It’s a difficult one when you lead a game but then concede.”

On the impact on the hopes for the season:

“The boys are all disappointed. We wanted to come here and win but that didn’t happen. We’ll go away and think about it for a day or two but we’ll be ready for the weekend.”

On his goal:

“It was a lovely ball in from Ben Close. We work on them in training with Paul Green. It was a great ball in and all I had to do was get enough contact on it. I’m pleased it went in.

“It’s nice to get the fans up and happy but it’s disappointing we didn’t get the win.”

On his Rovers career so far:

“I think every player should be frustrated if they’re not playing but you just have to train hard and be ready when called upon. Chances will come and I got a chance and I scored as well. Hopefully I can go again and get a few more before the end of the season.

“We’ll see what exactly is up with George [Miller]. Whether or not he comes in or I’m back on the bench, I’ll be ready when called upon and we’ll see what happens.”

On the quest to get back to winning ways on home soil:

“We want to win every game. We haven’t had the best results recently but we’re working hard every day. The lads are remaining positive and we want to fight right until the end of the season.”
