We lacked that spark

6 October 2012

Eric Black frustrated as Rovers lose at home to Wolves.

Eric Black felt that the 1-0 scoreline was harsh on Rovers whilst admitting that they didn't do enough to win the game themselves.

Bakary Sako scored the only goal of the game 13 minutes from time, the Wolves midfielder lashing home after Rovers had failed to clear his corner kick.

Rovers edged possession but didn't do enough to win the game as clear cut opportunities were at a premium.

"I think looking at it a draw was probably a fair result," Black told Radio Rovers after the match.

"I'm not saying we did enough to win the game but I didn't think they did either so losing the game was possibly harsh.

"There was nothing in it, it was a jaded display from us, it wasn't to be today.

"We should have been better at retaining the ball and a bigger force up front but we lacked that spark.

"We lacked that sharpness up front to get that goal today."

Over 17,000 fans attended the match which delighted Eric Black and he hopes the supporters continue to turn up in their numbers.

"It was great, the more people we can get in the seats the better," added Black. "The sooner we can get everybody behind us the better.

"For the players it gives them confidence, it can also influence things so the more we can get sitting out there cheering the players on the better."
