The Opposition View - Bristol Rovers

The Opposition View - Bristol Rovers



In the wake of yesterday's 2-1 defeat to Bristol Rovers at Adams Park, here are some views from their manager Darrell Clarke and the Pirates' fans.

Bristol Rovers boss Clarke was phlegmatic in victory. 'I'm pretty level headed to be honest with you because I know there's still work to be done'.

'So it's great to come here and get three points as it stays in our hands for our final home game, but nothing's done yet and I don't want people getting carried away to think it is'.

'We know what we require now at home to Mansfield, but it is a tough league and nothing is a given' Clarke continued.

'It was a bit of a brave call as I changed it to a 3-5-2 as I knew all the other teams were winning at half-time so this was a game we had to win'.

'We needed to be aware of the other scores - I'm not doing my job properly if I don't. I knew the others were all winning at half-time so I had plan B ready in the changing room' he said.


The Rovers fans were unsurprisingly relieved and revelled in their crucial victory.

The following extracts are taken from the Rovers Talk forum.

Gas-Ed said: 'Great free-kick from Browner. Loved the scenes at the end. You'll never get rid of the gas'.

Rod1883 said: 'Those Wycombe players look really down, no fight or desire to stay up that I would have wanted to see in our players if we were in their position after yesterday - let's hope that they carry that lack of spirit into next week's game'.

Mehew magic said: 'I'm not writing them (Wycombe) off yet. Nothing wrong with being depressed after a blow like this as long as you pick yourself up and come back again next sat. Look at us lot on here. Lots of people have said they'll never watch rovers again etc but a few days later we pick ourselves back up and go again. What else can you do? I'm sure Wycombe will be up for Gulls game. Let's just hope Gulls are up for a fight as well. If Gulls win they won't go down as bottom of the table'.

Kingswood Polak said: 'What's this I hear about the Wimbledon playing an unregistered player 3 times? I've been told it could mean a 10 point or more reduction. I would much rather be safe by footballing means but would take it if needed. I would not want the Wombles relegated after what they have been through. Anyone else know more?'

Medical Gas said: 'I was in the boardroom/ hospitality area nice access to Wycombe officials. Asked if I could meet the safety officer 'with the intention of serves you right you cheat' but was told he was sacked some time ago. ohhh shame'.

RoverDrive said: "Woke up buzzing this morning. Fair enough, it's not job done just yet, but too much needs to happen for us to go down and yesterday's result would have given us the belief to at least get a point which would secure it'.

Gasometer said: 'If yesterday's result keeps us up and sends Wycombe down, it's retribution. I'm sure many Gasheads like me have been waiting for an opportunity for retribution for the lightning storm travesty. Cheats can prosper but they don't endure. No sympathy for Wycombe's plight, it is dog eat dog and we have to be hungrier'.

FramptonGas said: 'The victory yesterday was all the sweeter given last season's farce'.

UpTheRovers said: 'Yesterdays 3 points was revenge for last season`s abandoned game. Next week's result if we get a point or all 3, we would be responsible for sending them down (can't see Northampton losing). that would be revenge for 2001 when they relegated us'.
