Rosler: Winning is a good habit

Cole's strike saw Town to victory

Head Coach Uwe Rosler is happy with the way his team set out against Blackburn Rovers’ under-23s and thinks that both teams deserved congratulating after the game.

Rosler admits that he is enjoying watching his side start to enjoy a winning momentum and a new habit of winning is emerging.

“The medal always has two sides and one side is of course that we won, that is always a good habit to be in and I’m happy about the run we have had,” said the Head Coach.

“That comes from doing enough and working extremely hard to keep the run going, to get wins in that league, or in the cup competition.

“We as a team today have performed as well as we could.”

Tactics played a huge part in the result and Rosler believes that when they changed the formation just before the half, they were playing at their best and believes that Michael Duckworth played a big part in that.

“When we switched to the three at the back and the five in the midfield, it was our best period,” said Rosler.

“We scored a goal, opened them up and we looked very promising in the second half.

“We changed to the three and I wanted to see some of the players, as I have not seen some of them at all since I walked through the doors.

“I think one positive thing was Duckworth’s performance today.

“He was very good in defending, which was his main job, but also pushing forward.”

But not all the praise was directed towards his side, as he congratulated the way that Damien Johnson’s side set out throughout the game, closing down the midfield.

“All credit to their coaches, they worked us out,” said the Head Coach.

“They locked onto Glendon and our other midfielders so they couldn’t get on the ball and they really put pressure on us by winning a lot of the second balls.

“All credit to the Blackburn players, they are young, energetic and ambitious team of players who wanted to play and show themselves and well done to them.

“We played a very physical team out there and in all fairness, they deserved at least one goal so a draw probably would have been a fair result.”
