Two-goal hero Adam Armstrong admitted Rovers had to cling on to their narrow lead in the second half but felt the visitors deserved the three points for an “excellent” first half display.

 Two first half goals at vital times from Armstrong were both taken excellently, with the loan striker rifling home 11 minutes into the contest before cooly slotting past Lee Nicholls just before half time.
And the striker was quick to praise tribute to the whole team for a resolute defensive display in the final 15 minutes in particular at Stadium MK.
“It’s a massive win for us. We were excellent in the first half but we dropped off a little bit in the second half and had to produce some excellent defending with some great saves from David [Raya] as well.
“To get quick goals is always good as it puts opponents under pressure. I’m pleased with how I played and I thought the rest of the lads were excellent.
“I took my two goals well but the most important thing was to pick up the three points. I came close to finding the hat-trick, but two goals is nice and three points is perfect.”
And Arma’s adamant that at this stage of the season points are more important than performances, confessing that seven ugly wins will do him and the team very nicely indeed.
“We’ll take 1-0 wins from now until the end of the season - everyone would. The main thing this season is to get promoted and we want that to carry on now.
“We know teams will come after us. We had to hang on and we did. We need to kick on from here. 
"Everyone knows how important the remaining games are and we’ll continue to train hard every day to ensure those three points keep coming."
