Head coach praises side after 3-1 win over Bristol Rovers
Boss Uwe Rosler hailed his side’s “unbelievable” performance in their 3-1 win at Highbury against Bristol Rovers on Saturday.
Ashley Hunter, Cian Bolger and David Ball all scored to earn yet another win at home this season, and extends the Cod Army’s unbeaten run to 13 games in all competitions.
Following the match, head coach Rosler credited his side’s resilience, after a determined performance ensured the victory.
“Those are the games you have to win,” said Rosler.
“A hard battled three points against a very good Bristol Rovers side, we went up two nil relatively quickly but we needed to put in a lot.
“They had one or two big chances in the first half and our keeper made some fantastic saves to keep the lead.
“In the second half we restricted them, majority-wise from shots outside the box.”
In his post-match press conference, Rosler was eager to praise the support of the Cod Army, who were very vocal in a spicy affair.
“It was a proper game and the atmosphere was brilliant, the supporters supported us and I think that helped the team.
“The way they supported the team helped us to stay firm and get the three points.”
The fans were in fine voice throughout, no doubt buoyed by Town’s fine form of thirteen games unbeaten, and chants of ‘Uwe, Uwe’ could be heard around Highbury.
“It’s not about the manager, it’s about the team, it’s about us getting points and we played a very good team today.
“It’s more important that we look at ourselves on our run.
“We need to put a lot in, the longer the run goes, the more we have to put in.”
Rosler also took the time out to credit the support he was receiving behind the scenes, in trying to develop his squad during the January transfer window.
“We’re trying really hard, the chairman is fantastic, Gretar (Steinsson, technical director) and Steve (Curwood, chief executive) are working really hard.
“They try to help me, to help the team, to help our football club.
“We’re competing with a lot of other clubs in a different region of budget, so I’m not getting frustrated about the support, I get a lot of support.”
