The gaffer’s eyes are on the prize

Ger Rossi has spoken of his delight at the 1-0 win over Ormiston, but insists his Rovers squad have their eyes firmly set on nothing other than three points against Tweedmouth on Saturday

Rossi’s Rovers make the long trip to Old Shielfield Park as they forge on in the race to finish in the top six. Speaking to Neil Hobson ahead of the match, the manager said;

“I think last time we were talking about the issues brought about by our inactivity- and as such it didn’t really matter how we got the result- as long as we got the win and ninety-minutes under our belt

“The boys did really well, I though we played some good football in spells. Obviously, some issues, we were a bit wasteful in terms of chances- but as always, the character shone through as the guys continue to grow together.”

With Tweedmouth Rangers as the next target on Rossi’s hit-list, the Rovers will take heart from the last time the two sides crossed swords, as Peebles demolished the Northumberland outfit 7-2 in a fierce shellacking at Whitestone Park.

However, that fantastic result couldn’t be further from the gaffer’s mind- and has his mind set on little else than Saturday, he continued;

“Again, this is another tricky place to go- it definitely won’t be the same game as last time! I’m certain they’ll be looking for revenge after that result.

“As always, we’ll prepare the best we can; the boys know what’s at stake, and we’ve set targets in the dressing room about what we want from the rest of the season.

“We’re aware it’s going to be a difficult game- but we’ve got more than enough quality to get the right result going forward.”
