Ger's thoughts on yesterday's narrow win
We made it hard for ourselves again but the boys delivered a solid 3 points at Whitestone.
I honestly just think they do it on purpose the way they keep the management team on their toes for 90 plus minutes each week. It can’t be coincidental, can it?
In true Rovers fashion the game went down to the wire when it probably should have been a lot more comfortable. Defensively after a small blip last weekend, I felt the back four were outstanding once again in the way they controlled the game. Ben and Dicko never put a foot wrong and Cal and Mikey gave real assurance throughout.
Our midfield also put in a massive shift especially when we go down to ten. And our forward players took real pressure off us at crucial moments. All in all, it was a real team performance in terms of managing the game. But from our angle the game should’ve been put to bed. Credit to Craigroyston though as they pushed us to the end. Chris has a young energetic side and I felt they were always dangerous on the counter.
It would be fair to say we weren’t at our free flowing best but again I felt we controlled the game for the large majority. The boys always put a big shift in but we will have better days in front of goal. I know I speak for Brogie, Allan and Kyle when I say we all cannot wait for that day!
Huge thanks to the support again, we’d love to see you back down at Whitestone next weekend!
