Keith Hill's reaction to Scunthorpe draw

10 April 2021

Tranmere Rovers manager Keith Hill gave his thoughts after his side’s goalless draw away at Scunthorpe United on Saturday.

Rovers had the better of the chances at Glanford Park but had to settle for a point. 

Hill said: “We missed opportunities in the second-half. I thought that in the first-half we looked a bit nervy, and we weren’t really on the front foot, they changed and played to a diamond to reflect what we were doing and we became predictable.

“Once we got possession and got into the final third, I thought that we had a few decent opportunities without keeping repeating that energy that we needed, and we probably should have got more from the game.

“Football is unfortunate, and we can’t keep stressing about it. We kept a clean sheet, and it was the first one in a while, so that was important but it’s a game where there’s disappointment and we should have put the game to bed, but it’s a game that we didn’t.

“We have a quick turnaround, and it is a great opportunity to play a game of football and we can’t keep looking at the league table or the next game, we have to deal with the right here, right now and perform, as this could be a missed opportunity and we don’t want it to be because the lads and everybody has worked ever so hard.

“We are having a great season, but we don’t want to waste it and what we have done so far in the last six games that we have got, and it is an opportunity that we can’t turn down.

“We need to have more composure, we had a lot of crosses and corners in the second-half, it was just one of those games and it could be one of our most important points of the season, but we have to start winning games or this could be a wasted opportunity, so I’m disappointed that we haven’t won the game, but I’m pleased that we’ve kept a clean sheet.

“I’ve got to try and relax the players and make sure that they are ready to perform.”
