Brown eager to build on his 90 minutes

Rovers striker Chris Brown had mixed feelings after Saturday's 1-0 loss to Brighton.

The forward, who started his first league match of the season, also came though his first 90 minutes of the campaign.

But whilst pleased that he was rewarded with the man-of-the-match, Brown was disappointed that it wasn't backed up with a positive result for the team.

"I'm pleased got the 90 minutes," the striker told Radio Rovers.

"I felt strong in the game and in the second half it was only in the last five minutes or so where my legs started to go a little bit.

"But it is more disappointing than anything because we need to be winning these games.

"I thought we got off to a really good start before the goal, we applied a lot of pressure. So it was a bit of a sucker-punch to be honest.

"In the second half we did a little bit better, we got the ball out wide and caused them problems, but it just wouldn't fall for us in the end."

The former Doncaster forward has had a stop-start Rovers career to date. But believes that he is finally nearing full fitness after struggling with a persistent knee injury.

"In the last week to ten days I've started feeling a lot better," he added.

"I want to be involved, I'm enjoying my training, I'm enjoying working with the staff. I know that I've still got a lot of self-belief that I can perform.

"I played 90 minutes and I just want to build on it now and give it a good go towards the end of the season."
