ANTON Rodgers says that it’s important for Town to keep striving for more control in matches after coming from behind to earn points in three of their last four games.
With the end of the 2015/16 campaign now on the horizon, the midfielder admits that the character of the players in the squad will be key over the remaining fixtures.
“If it means we’ve got to dig deep to get a result we’ve shown we can do that but it’s important we keep striving for better performances and controlling games like we want to,” he said. “We’ve shown great character in games and going into the end of the season that’s what we’re going to need. We’re going to need big characters in the group and that’s what we’re showing.”
Town’s next League 1 encounter sees them take on Coventry City on Saturday afternoon. With Luke Williams’ side set to be backed by close to 2,000 away supporters, Rodgers declared that he was expecting a difficult game at the Ricoh Arena.
“Every game is a tough game,” he said. “Everyone is fighting for something different. It’s going to be a good football game. Normally we go into games knowing we’re going to have a lot of the ball and I think this could be close because when they played us before they were a very good footballing team and technically it was a good game - that was another game we had to come back and get a result in.”
He added: “When you go to these kinds of places you’re even more excited for the game. These are big games and these are the games you want to play in but of course when you hear that nearly 2,000 (away) tickets have been sold that’s what you want to see. They (the supporters) have been brilliant home and away this season and we’ll look forward seeing them and hopefully giving them the result they want.”
