Room for improvement

7 October 2014

Whilst pleased to have kept his second clean sheet from four outings, goalkeeper Jason Steele knows Rovers should have claimed more points this past week.

Steele kicked off his loan stint at Rovers with three points and a shutout at Fulham, but since then they've collected just two points from their following three games.

A 2-2 draw with Watford was followed by a disappointing loss at Rotherham in midweek, and although Rovers claimed a point and a clean sheet against Huddersfield, it left the former England Under-21 stopper wanting more.

"Looking back over the last week you know we should have picked up more points than did do," Steele told Radio Rovers.

"At the same time we've come away with another clean sheet and we've got to build on them.

"We've missed a lot of chances, against Watford, Rotherham and now Huddersfield, a lot of chances have gone begging. On another day we could have won all three games quite comfortably but that is football.

"So it has been one of those weeks for us, and when you are having one, you need to dig in. So to dig in and not concede, is a sign of a good togetherness and a good squad.

"We've spoke at length about the fact that we score a lot of goals but we concede too many. Since I've come here we've let four goals in in four games which obviously means there is room for improvement.

"We've taken two clean sheets at the same time, that is something that we can build on."

Tickets for Rovers' next match against Ipswich Town are currently on open sale. Prices for the Portman Road clash are £32.50 for Adults, £23 for Seniors 60+ and Students with a valid NUS, £22 for Under 10s and £11.50 for Under 16’s.
