Striker on his goals at Adams Park

Striker Eliot Richards was disappointed that his two goals at Wycombe will count for nothing following the decision to abandon the game on health and safety grounds.

"We are all really disappointed that the game was called off. We came out flying, scored an early goal, conceded an equaliser and then scored twice more and pushed on from there."

His goals, Rovers' second and third of the afternoon, were quite stunning strikes and gave his side a 3-1 half time lead.

"The first one came to me, I controlled it and just lashed it, and thankfully it went into the top corner. The second one was very similar, in that it came at me very quickly and I just hit it."

They were his first goals of the season and although they won't show in the record books, the strikes are bound to boost his confidence.

"I could have got off the mark in the last game, and I missed an early chance in this one before getting my two goals. Hopefully that will kickstart my season and I'll go on to score a lot more goals.

"I am gutted about the fact that the game was abandoned, and so are the rest of the lads because we worked hard to get into the lead.

"I think we have now shown what we are capable of and we will go into our next game, do the same and push on, hoping to build on that performance."
