DARRELL - GOALS WILL COME

6 October 2014

Rovers boss Darrell Clarke is still annoyed at dropping two points on Saturday against Dover, but insists that the mood in the changing room is still positive.

“There was a lot of frustrated lads in the changing room, which is good to see.

“I see a lot of good in the changing room at the moment, it helps with the results we’ve had, but there is a good togetherness and I think that has been showing on the pitch.

“It was disappointing that we didn’t see the game out of that we weren’t that little bit more clinical at the top end of the pitch.

“We were just lacking that little bit in the final third on Saturday, but I think we created enough chances to win the game.

“After they did equalise we had another go at them to try and win the game even though it was late on.

“I’m not going to be over critical of the players, I think they have been fantastic and we will try and bounce back to winning ways tomorrow night.

Adam Cunnington scored the third goal of his loan spell with the club although there were questions of offside. 

“It was a good goal for him, I've looked back at a copy of the game and he was well onside and turned the ball in well.

The clubs strikers have come under criticism in recent weeks for not scoring enough goals, but Darrell maintains that their effort levels are great and that the goals will start to come.

“I feel sorry for Matty Taylor because he is working so hard bringing others into the game, it frustrating for him because he could be sat on four or five goals.

“Strikers will always be judged on goals, with Cunnington, Taylor, Harrison and White we’ve got the strikers in there that need to be producing more goals. But if they keep working as hard as they do, the goals will come.

Dartford are up next at the Memorial Stadium tomorrow night [Tuesday] and only one team has beaten The Darts by more than one goal so it is going to be another difficult game at the Mem.

“They picked up a point against Grimsby and were unlucky to not get all three so as always it is going to be another tough game.

“They are hard to score against, they are well organised as Tony [Burman] likes to have them but we will be working hard to get that all important three points.
