Growing Belief and Confidence.
The journey up to Grimsby from Bristol and from other parts looked to be a bit of a hike for most but decent motor way routes made the trip relatively “doable” on the day. An early start and the long journey home was well tempered by another fine all round team display against a club still fancied for a play off spot and promotion.
On paper this was the most difficult away fixture since the very first week of the season. Barnet came unstuck up there a few weeks ago and there was every reason to believe that The Mariners would be a very stiff test for a Rovers side not beaten in the League since mid October.
In the event we saw another performance full of energy, commitment and togetherness. We played our part to the full; the support throughout the game was magnificent and very much appreciated. We were justly rewarded in the end and thank you for following the team on the road once again.
To recover from a missed penalty in the way that we did and to go on to win the game in second half showed the mental strength necessary to see this job through to the end.
Two home games coming up and a growing belief that we can do this; together we can. See you all at the Mem on Saturday and thank you again for supporting Bristol Rovers Football Club.
