LINES - THE PRESSURE IS ON BARNET

8 April 2015

Chris Lines talks about the last three games

After an impressive 0-3 win over Kidderminster, Bristol Rovers go into their last three games of the season full of confidence and Chris Lines told us that all of the pressure is on table topping Barnet.

"All we can do is keep winning our games, in the our last few games not only have we been winning but we have been winning comfortably.

"We just need to pick up all nine points in these remaining games and then whatever happens next will happen.

"We are winning games by three or more goals and Barnet are scraping 1-0's, I don't know if they've been dominating games because I haven't been watching them but the pressure is all on them.

"They might have looked at the score at half time on Monday hoping that Kidderminster could do them a favor but we came out in the second half and I feel deservedly got a goal to get things going.

"I don't think Kidderminster created anything against us Monday and it was one of those games where you feel comfortable on the pitch because I never thought they were going to score.

Ellis Harrison has been branded a 'super sub' by many but score two goals at Aggborough on Monday after starting the game and Chris Lines is happy for him.

"I'm buzzing for Ellis, he is one of my best mates at the club and I'm sure he doesn't want to get the tag as a good sub.

"I think he proved on Monday that he is good enough because I don't think Kidderminster could handle him.

"He has had to wait his turn the past couple of weeks with Jermaine [Easter] coming back into the team but I think he definitely took his chance on Monday to show everyone what he can do.

Things seem to be clicking on and off the field for Rovers and Chris thinks the bond between players and supporters is fantastic.

"These supporters are always unbelievable at this Football Club and Monday was the same.

"I could tell that the team spirit here was brilliant when I came back into the club and that is why the lads have done so well this season.

"There is a great buzz about the place not only between the players but with the supporters as well and this is the right time of season to get on a good run like this.
