Olowu seeks to learn lessons from tough times

1 October 2023

Joseph Olowu insists he is determined to take lessons on board every time he takes to the pitch.

The centre back admits Rovers need to be better defensively as they seek to improve form on a more consistent basis.

And part of that involves personally taking something away from every game.

“Earlier on, I had some moments of learning,” he told the media following the defeat at Barrow. “Now I’m coming into it and taking each game as it comes, each training session as it comes and wanting to improve and be better.

“Every time I step out onto the pitch I want to give the best account of myself possible.”

On the side’s defensive record, Olowu believes Rovers need to be better in individual moments but says that falls upon the team as a collective rather than any single player.

“It’s moments, generally speaking,” he said. “We’re not getting carved apart.

“Some may see it as too easy for the opposition but we need to make sure we’re doing better as a team. We need to make chances for the other team a lot harder to come by.

“We need to knuckle down, do things better as a team and get back to what got us the three wins on the bounce.

“We need to get back to our principles and it will reap rewards.”

Olowu was frustrated that Rovers failed to take anything away from Barrow having scored twice against a side whose defence has been particularly miserly so far this season.

The Bluebirds had conceded seven goals in their opening eight league matches prior to welcoming Rovers on Saturday.

Olowu said: “The frustrating part is that Barrow are a team that doesn’t concede much, especially at home.

“For us to get two goals, we’ve done a lot there but to come away without anything is very disappointing.”
