Micky's reaction to Bristol Rovers draw

21 November 2021

Rovers boss Micky Mellon gave his thoughts on Saturday's hard earned point on the road against Bristol Rovers.

Goals from Callum Macdonald and Paul Glatzel were enough to earn Rovers a point after their opponents had raced into an early 2-0 lead, Mellon discussed his feelings at the goals conceded, the vital timing of Macdonald's goal and his overall reaction on proceedings to local media post-match.

"I think we're disappointed to give two goals away, especially when we've got centre-backs. We've got to defend crosses better than that and we know that, that's not me criticising the lads, I would never do that. I'm just saying what has to happen.

"We gave ourselves a two-goal deficit to try and get back in it, and then we score a goal at a good time to get back in the game again and come in at half-time. 

"In the second half, we just kept pushing on and pushing on. We just said we know at some stage that if we stay in the game and don't get another cheap goal away we'll get an opportunity and we take it and we're back in it again.

"So, it was a tough-fought game, two teams really going at it, it was very physical. Spoiled I think by the referee really, I've got to be honest.

"But in the end, pleased to get a point, but disappointed with what we've had to do to gain that point. If somebody would've told me we'd score two goals at Bristol Rovers before the game, I'd have expected to have won the game.

"So we'll keep going at it, it's a tough place to come, we knew that it was going to be a real battle. We'll accept the point and get back home safely."
