Winning Spirit

20 March 2013

ADAM Rooney helped fire the Robins to one point off the automatic promotion places with the opening goal in a 2-0 win at Yeovil Town on Tuesday night.

The Irishman hammered home from the penalty spot late in the second half, taking his tally for the season to six goals.

The on-loan Birmingham City frontman was delighted with the win and offered his views on a tough shift at Huish Park shortly after full-time.

He said: “Everyone put in a great shift and the main thing was the three points. I had a chance early in the second half but their ‘keeper made a great save.

“When we got the penalty I wanted it and we have been taking a fair few in training. Collo (James Collins) is the usual penalty taker so it was great of him to let me have it.

“He got his goal at the end and it was a great finish. I am sure he will have been disappointed not to start the game because he has done so well this season, but you can see how hard everyone is working in the squad.”

The win lifts Town back into third place in League One, just a point behind Brentford. Rooney believes the run-in to the campaign will be close – but that Town’s own fate remains in their hands.

“A few results went for us at the weekend and there are plenty of important games to come between now and the season. All we need to do is make sure we do our bit and win as many games as we can.

“The lads really want success this year and everyone is doing their bit. The fans have been fantastic again and we all want to go as far as we can this season.”
