WATCH | McCann reacts to goalless draw with Swindon Town

2 September 2023

Grant McCann felt Tommy Rowe’s dismissal ruined the game between battling Rovers and Swindon Town at the Eco-Power Stadium.

A positive first half for Rovers ended in frustrating fashion as Rowe was sent off after his challenge on George McEachran was deemed high by referee Ed Duckworth.

While he refused to be drawn on his thoughts on the decision, McCann said it took the sting out of a competitive game but was proud of the battling spirit of his team.

"I just felt the game was ruined by the decision," McCann said. "It was two good teams who wanted to play and I felt it was going to be a really good game.

"The sending off changed the game and we had to look at a different way of playing in the second half.

"I felt the team was excellent, resolute, defended every single ball that came into the box and I don't think Ian Lawlor has made a save, which is testament to the players and how they worked.”
