Mulgrew - Our game plan almost worked

1 January 2017

Charlie Mulgrew was disappointed that Rovers weren't able to see out Saturday's match to claim the three points against Huddersfield.

Rovers soaked up plenty of pressure in the first half at the John Smith's Stadium before grabbing the opening goal eight minutes from time through Danny Graham.

But the visitors weren't able to see out the match as Nahki Wells struck deep in injury time to ensure the points would have to be shared.

"It is disappointing because we reduced them to very little chances in the second half," said the Scottish international.

"They had one or two in the first half and the game plan was almost perfect, but they've scored in the last minute. So we are disappointed that way but we must take the positives from it and move on.

"We had a game plan and we worked on it and I felt it went well for us, we knew that they would have a lot of the ball but our plan was to let them have it in the areas that wouldn't hurt us and we had great shape as a team.

"So we need to take that forward now, we need to pick up points, we should have no excuses. If we stick to game plans and battle for each other then I think we will be okay."
