Pleased with the cutting edge

The boss was delighted with his strikers having an impact at The Den

13 January 2019

Strikers are paid well to score goals, and two of Rovers' own both found the net at Millwall on Saturday, to please boss Tony Mowbray.

Joe Nuttall was the first to find the net late in the second half, before substitute Adam Armstrong wrapped things up a moment later to earn a 2-0 victory against the Lions.
 
And speaking after the game, the boss was chuffed to utilise his squad and see the pair come to the party in the capital.
 
“When you tell players they aren’t playing, of course they aren’t too happy, but it’s about the squad," Mowbray began to iFollow Rovers.
 
"I thought Nuttall was a real trojan today, running around, giving their centre halves a tough time.
 
“He got his reward at the end with a first goal - if we are going to give it to him, of course!
 
“I’m delighted for him, and then Danny [Graham] came on and messed them around a bit, held the ball up well.
 
“I’m delighted to see Armstrong score. He played through the middle, not out wide, and did what he does in training every day.
 
“It’s difficult to play Armstrong in that position because normally it’s Bradley Dack playing there, but I’m delighted with the result and delighted to see the changes help the team win.
 
“We’ll rest up over the weekend and prepare for Tuesday night."
