Bristol Rovers shared the spoils at the Impact Arena with Alfreton Town with the Rovers boss disappointed with the result.

“We are looking at the game as two points dropped. There was only one side that looked like they wanted to win it and that was ourselves.

“We weren’t good enough in our final movements but we are very frustrated.

“We were camped in their half for large periods of the second half and the only real opportunity they were going to have was going to come from a set piece.

“It is another game that we have dominated and we just couldn’t take our chances.

Rovers upped their tempo in the second half as they searched for the winning goal but Darrell insists that you need to look at the bigger picture.

“The game was flat, the atmosphere was flat, it was a very strange game.

“We said to the boys at half time they needed to raise their performances 10/15 percent to go on and win the game.

“I thought we raised it, but couldn’t get that all important goal that would give us the three points.

“The bigger picture is two away games in the league with us getting four points from those two games.

Rovers now play three of their next four games at the Memorial Stadium which the manager is looking forward too.

“The boys are frustrated in there and I’m sure the supporters that have made the trip up here will be as well.

“We have to stay strong as a group which we will do and we will be looking to be playing a few games at home in front of all of our supporters.
