Rosler says Doncaster point was a fair result

18 November 2017

Uwe Rosler says Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Doncaster Rovers was a fair result.

Both sides played a very similar shape and clear-cut chances were few and between as Town played their first game at Highbury in three weeks.

Rosler’s side kept a second consecutive clean sheet at home, but in the end had to settle for a point.

“It was a very intense game,” said Rosler.

“Before the match I predicted that the two teams would play with a similar shape and cancel each other out, but I thought in the first half we played well with the wind going forward.

“Devante Cole had two very good chances when we were on top, not massively but we were the better team. In the second have Doncaster were the better team.

“When the substitutes came on, they didn’t turn the momentum around and we were hanging in there towards the end.

“My players gave everything, but it was a fair result today.”

Despite keeping Rovers out at one end, the German also highlighted in his post-match press conference the fact that he has important players missing.

“I am not happy that we are not winning,” added Rosler.

“Defensively I am happy, but we need to work on the structure when we have a corner. There were some scary moments in the match, but first and foremost, we need players back.

“We are getting thin with injuries, and when you look at our bench today, it tells you a story. 

“George Glendon will be assessed and then we will see who is available for Tuesday.”

Town are back in action on Tuesday at Walsall, and then host Blackpool in a Fylde Coast derby next Saturday.
