Points tally doesn't match the performances

28 August 2016

Boss Owen Coyle believes the team are showing signs of improvement with every game they play.

Rovers seemed set to claim their first clean sheet and a worthy point against high-flying Fulham on Saturday until Tom Cairney struck in injury time for the visitors.

After just one point from the first five games the manager knows that Rovers haven't collected near enough points, but insists that it is still early in the season.

"I think we have shown in each game that we are getting better, but we just don't have the points to merit those performances," Coyle told Radio Rovers.

"Last week we felt that we were worthy of all three against Burton and we certainly deserved a minimum of one against Fulham.

"We know that we are going to pick up points and get a run of games going. It is still early in the season, there are 41 games in which to pick up points from and after the international break that is what we will look to do."

The first team are back in action away at QPR after the international break, whilst the development squad take part in the new-look Checkatrade Trophy this Tuesday night at Fulham.

Fans going to see the Under-23s in action can pay on the night at the Highbury Stadium, prices are £20 for Adults, £10 for Seniors and £5 for Under-16s.
