To be fair it's embarrassing not being able to score against this opposition. We've only had 2 shots on target

Think we need a proven goalscorer at this level

Be a bad loss this though, at home against a very very average at best side in League 1

Oh well back to mediocrity. How the he'll do you lose three home games to teams in the bottom half of the league and hope to succeed. Well Rovers do things the difficult way and this just another example. The Shrewsbury game is going to be interesting.

Wimbledon, Doncaster and Southend have won 4 league games between them and somehow 3 have been over us. :?
We really have won the harder games on paper so far.
Oh well onto Shrewsbury, I imagine there'll be plenty of changes, especially in midfield given our depth there.

Problem is, when teams figure out what we want to do all game, we don't adjust.

Seems as though the lads don't get up for the matches their supposed to win. Feeling as though the level is beneath them, and it shows when they play the lower part of the table. But the reality is they're is not enough class out on the pitch to just roll out of bed and bag a few. Not even against league 1 squads.

You only have to take a look at the Wimbledon goal to workout how poor Rovers were yesterday. To be allowed to run basically unchallenged into the box is school boy stuff. Going one down then losing Conway to injury meant things went against us at the mid point in the first half. Given that though Rovers had plenty of time to regroup but no one seemed to own the game. The amount of chances created was pitiful. Must do better against Shrewsbury where a win is now needed over a draw which would have been exceptable if Rovers had beaten Wimbledon.
