Tosin - Great to put things right

A first senior goal, a Man of the Match display, three points and a spot in a number of Team of the Week's, it's fair to say that Tosin Adarabioyo hasn't had many better Saturday afternoons.

The powerful defender produced an assured and calm display at the heart of the Rovers backline against Sheffield Wednesday, and played his part further up the field late on by looping a header over Keiren Westwood.

There was still a dramatic, match-winning strike from John Buckley and an excellent Christian Walton save to come, but Rovers managed to pick up a much-needed victory to the delight of Man of the Match Adarabioyo.

"It's been a great afternoon for us to get the three points after what's been a tough last few weeks," the 22-year-old defender admitted to iFollow Rovers.

"It was a dramatic end to the game, but the most important thing was to get the win.

"It was great to get the first senior goal of my career. I saw we had a wide free kick so I managed to beat my man in the air, see the 'keeper off his line and loop it in.

"I was waiting for it to drop in and it did eventually. I'm really happy to finally get a goal in a senior match to help us get the points.

"With it being Bucko who got the winner, we couldn't believe it. What a great moment, and we're all delighted for him. He's only young, so for him to do that was a great moment for him.

"We had a late scare where we all just paused, fortunately Chris [Walton] made a great save."

And the Manchester City loanee added that he's keen for the latest result to be the springboard for back-to-back wins, with a trip to Leeds United next up on the schedule.

"Everyone knows what's been going on in terms of results over the last few weeks, but we've got the points so it's just about going again next weekend," he said.

"We're always looking forward to the next game. It's a big game in a hostile stadium so we just need to put everything in to get the win."
