DRFC - O'Driscoll praises duo

DRFC - O'Driscoll praises duo

Sean O`Driscoll was quick to praise Rovers new boy Steve Brooker and John Spicer who made only his second League start of the season.

Speaking on the official website about Brooker O`Driscoll said "It`s a good start for him, he`s keen to play some football and it`s a good start for him"

Brooker got on the end of a John Spicer cross only six minutes after coming on for his debut and O`Driscoll was quick to praise Spicer`s overall contribution to the game. Continuing on the official website the boss continued "He has good legs and good athletic ability, good technical ability and he made a difference out there. He got better as the game went on, which is what you want from a player"

The draw at Watford stretched Rovers unbeaten run to four games although they did slip back to the bottom of the League.

Rover`s fans have a renewed optimism with the signing of Steve Brooker and the impact he made when coming on.

It`s the first time a Rovers striker has found the net in over 1600 minutes of football this season since Lewis Guy found the net in mid August.

The Rovers team emerged from the dressing room a good few minutes before their hosts for the second half on Saturday, by the sounds of O`Driscoll`s comments a few home truths were dished out during the interval.
Once again speaking on the official website Sean said "I thought we were feeling sorry for ourselves at half time, all you want is a reaction from your players and I thought we did that in the second half"

Next up is Plymouth Argyle at the Keepmoat next Saturday when Rovers will be hoping to continue their recent good form with a much needed three points.
