Greg: Let's build on our weekend win

“I just have to keep my performances high and it’s important to get my recovery right and prepare for Tuesday"

19 August 2019

Game one of a three-game week worked out perfectly for Rovers, and Greg Cunningham wants a similar outcome after Tuesday night's trip to Hull City.

The loan left back produced an assured performance in the backline in the 1-0 win over Middlesbrough on Saturday, with the 28-year-old playing his part in a first clean sheet of the season.

On his league debut for Rovers, the Cardiff City loanee certainly impressed, and the Irishman is eager for the victory to be a springboard for Tony Mowbray's side this week.

“A clean sheet, three points, we’re off the mark and want to get a run going now," he beamed after the win.

“It showed what’s in that dressing. As well as talent everyone has heart and grit and fight and that’s needed in this league when the games come thick and fast.

“We played some great stuff at times and when we needed to dig in at times we did and got the job done.

“We made it hard for ourselves but dug deep and found a way to get the job done. That was again testament to the boys.

“On paper it should have been more straightforward than it was but from a personal point of view it was nice to get back out on the pitch again."

It's a fresh start for Cunningham, who arrived for the season on deadline day from Neil Warnock's Bluebirds.

And he's expected to keep his place on the left side of the back four for tomorrow's clash against The Tigers at the KCOM Stadium.

“It’s been a frustrating last year for me - I just want to play football," he added.

"I have come to play games and do what I can for this club.

“I just have to keep my performances high and it’s important to get my recovery right and prepare for Tuesday.” It’s a great bunch of lads here.

“I knew Darragh [Lenihan] and Del [Williams] from the Irish set-up. It’s good to build that chemistry. The Irish just get on well together.

“Hopefully we can keep having some good performances, clean sheets and wins.”
