Having seen his side pick up six points from two games this week the Rovers boss was pleased with how his team dealt with another difficult game.

“It was a very tough game, Welling were very disciplined for a large portion of the game and kept 9 men behind the ball most of the time.

“We had to change it at half time to get more going in the final third and it was good for Blissett to come off the bench and get his goal.

Darrell made two changes to the team that defeated table topping Barnet on Tuesday bringing in Jake Gosling and new loan signing Alex Wall but said the first half lacked an overall pace.

“I wanted to freshen things up after Tuesday’s game and I thought Alex [Wall] had some good touches but is lacking match fitness and Jake [Gosling] wasn’t as strong on the ball today as I know he can be.

“The tempo just wasn’t there in the first half but at that point it was also important that we didn’t concede on the counter.

Matty Taylor put the game beyond doubt with a 73rd minute penalty and Darrell is pleased that Taylor is now adding goals to his game.

“Matty [Taylor] is a fantastic player and the work he does for us is brilliant.

“His positional sense and the work rate he brings to every game is amazing and I’m pleased that he is now adding goals to his all round game.

Today’s game marks the half-way point in the season and Rovers currently sit in third place in the table with Darrell making sure his, and his squads feet stay firmly on the ground.

“It is half-way through the season and yes we are in third but for today the most pleasing thing for me is another three points.

“We have a great set-up here now with the players that we have but we don’t want to get carried away.

“It will be consistency that gets you up the table and I think that at the moment we are very consistent.
