Hemmings: We have to do better

28 February 2022

Rovers striker Kane Hemmings says the squad must take accountability after being beaten on the road at Newport County on Saturday.

Kane started his interview with local media by giving his views on the game as a whole.

"I don't think we were great at all, we were miles off it to be fair. I think we were lucky to get back into the game at 2-2 but then to go and concede 2 goals, we were miles off it."

The defeat makes it four games without a win for Rovers, Kane says that the squad need to take accountability and they need to get better.

"Every single one of us needs to take accountability. I'm a football fan, I hate it when players come out and say 'we need to do this, we need to do that'.

"I'm lost for words, we need to do better. We were miles off it. We're not going to get anywhere if we perform like that, so, we need to get better."

Hemmings said that questions will be asked of the Rovers squad by Micky Mellon and themselves in the aftermath of the result, the striker has called on the group to return to the football that propelled them towards the top of the league standings.

"There are absolutely valid questions to be asked, the gaffer is going to ask them questions of us, we've got to look in the mirror and ask them questions of ourselves.

"Like I've said, it's so easy to come out here and say things, but we have to put performances on the pitch, that's the only way we're going to reconcile this. 

"We're still in a good position, we have to recognise and believe why we're in that position. We need to get back to playing the football that gets you in that position. We have to do better, that's all I can say."
