I feel for the Rovers fans. They’re only going off what they’ve read when I departed. I don’t blame them for the reception.

I wish them well in their mission.

Take your eyes of others, focus on your own and get behind Gaz and the team. I don’t hold any animosities. I want them to do well.

I didn’t know about that. For them to come back in that type of game makes me really pleased.

There was no panic at half-time. We had chances but we needed to stay on it.

For us to come back from a goal down dhows the mentality of the club. We said all along we needed to show that.

We had a lot of possession but never really got in that area.

Id seen Doncaster at Lincoln and their deep block. We threw those attackers on to make a difference and it was pleasing that worked.

Saido has been patient and he’s a clean finisher. We went in at half-time and such was the desire of the players they felt they could get back into the game. We wanted to move the ball quicker.

I wanted us to disrupt them. I’m pleased with the three points.

DM says they will have a look at Hutchinson and Gregory with a view to Tuesday’s game.

We’ve spoken about this. I am pleased with where the players are it. It’s been good but we want to get better.

We’ve had hurdles thrown t us in recent weeks. They’re in a good place and we have to keep going.

Really pleased. To see Pato and Saido come in and give us that level was great.

I thought we could build off them. It was good to get Gibson some minutes. He’s sat in there absolutely beaming.

We’re really pleased. He’s worked hard to come in. His defensive work was good and gave us that balance.

All round it was pleasing.

GOOOOOAALLLLLL BANNANNNNN!!

GOOOOOAAAAALLLLLL SAIDOOOOOOOO!!!

Gibson finds some space to roll in Berahino, who turns one way and the next and smashes it home.

2-1 Wednesdayyyy!!

Mitchell saves Bannan’s spot kick. His record is less than impressive, it has to be said.
