MacDonald's thoughts on Newport clash

25 February 2022

Rovers defender Calum MacDonald has called on the group to go again this Saturday, as they look to pick up a positive result away at Newport County.

Calum started his interview with local media by reflecting on Saturday's result and what Micky Mellon has told the squad this week.

"It is tough, I think we can take positives out of the performance throughout the game. I think we know as a team we had a twenty to thirty-minute spell in that second half where we should've put them away, we shouldn't have given them that opportunity to get back in the game.

"Of course, it hurts but like the gaffer says now, (there are) thirteen games to go, so there's no point dwelling on it. 

"We've got to just go again and go again this Saturday."

Calum also spoke about the importance of the next two games for Rovers, with two challenging encounters against Newport and Northampton. The defender says there's no better way to get winning again, than by beating the teams around them in the table.

"I think it's very important, we've got two away games coming up against two teams that are fighting for the same goal that we're.

"A win would be as good for us as it would be against a team which are also fighting for that place, so it would damage them. 

"Of course, we need to get back to winning games and with the run of games we've got coming up, there's no better way to really get going."
