McDonald: “We must work hard”

Rovers’ assistant manager, Allan McDonald, has said that a win against Eyemouth is the only thing that will help atone for last week’s 3-1 loss at Tweedmouth Rangers.

Goals from Ross Moore, Niall Jones, and Ben Jackson saw the Rovers slump to defeat in Berwick, but McDonald has spoken of his belief that lessons have been learned from the Old Shielfield Park clash, he explained;

“Saturday was a perfect example of the fact that possession doesn’t win games. We had lots of the ball, but just couldn’t put it in the back of the net.

“We can’t just turn up to matches and expect to win- but, good things always come out of games, and we just have to sharpen up on our finishing and take that into the Eyemouth game.”

Stuart Wilson’s lads come to Whitestone in a must-win match for both clubs that could have big ramifications on where the two sides will finish, and McDonald says that the team must work hard if they are to clinch all three points;

“We’ve been working hard on our finishing this week; no shooting on sight, but if an opportunity presents itself- take the shot. If it goes wide, it goes wide. But for every five shots that go wide- one might just go in.

“But, nothing’s a given, and we have to go out and work hard. We’ve played Eyemouth twice already this season and always been beaten by the one goal.

“There’s no point in crying over spilt milk however, and we need to remember that we’ve got a great squad here. They’re definitely a stuffy side, and it’s going to be tight- but we’re hopeful we can get the right result come Saturday.”
