A great feeling

25 November 2014

Jason Steele admitted the mood in the camp couldn't be higher after Saturday's dramatic late victory over Leeds United.

The on-loan goalkeeper was delighted to watch on from the other end of the pitch as two late goals from Jordan Rhodes saw Rovers rally to claim the points in dramatic fashion.

Speaking to Radio Rovers after the game, the stopper said: "When we go down to ten men and it is 1-1 you are thinking we are going to have to settle for a point here when we did actually have the upper hand and looking like we were going to get the win.

"We managed to get a penalty and Jordan has tucked it away. We are absolutely delighted in there, it is a great feeling to win a game of football like that."

Steele felt the victory showed the togetherness and battling spirit of the group and is predicting bigger and better things after the win saw Rovers move into the top six.

"It says that we've got a fantastic group of players," added the stopper. "So together, willing to fight and put our bodies on the line for each other and I think it shows in our performances recently.

"We didn't want the international break because of the run that we were on and the feeling around the camp, but we've come back and carried it on.

"We've now given ourselves the best chance of pushing on again next week. We've got another tough game, but we can go up there and I'm 100 per cent confident that we can get a result."

Rovers will need to show the same desire and belief when they take on Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium in Saturday's top-six clash.
