Hallam Hope:
- Team buzzing to get 3 points and clean sheet
- Everyone had to dig in
- Not just the defence, but the whole  team had to work on the clean sheet
- 'We were always going to score' (Really, not what I was watching!)
- The team knew it wasnt good enough against Accrington
- Good players who can pass the ball about. But its the other side of the game we have to do. Had to play long sometimes today
- Sheridan ideas on organisation and communication, which helps
- Some things are similar but others different that when he played at Carlisle under Sheridan.
- Anthony Grant: Think he'll be alright. Big player for us.

Not pretty, Rovers were very poor though not as bad as Rochdale earlier this season (worst team I have seen since us under Williams), but 3 well earned points, and for once fortune favoured us with the ball not bouncing in off the post as it has had a tendency to do this season.  I'll take that thank you, and optimistically take the view we have turned the corner.

Changed a couple of my markings upon reflection. I think Donahue and Grant were the standout performers and M Smith the best player on the park, but nowhere near his best.

T Wright:
- Clean sheet pleased him most
- Scrappy game
- Neither team in form
- Victory vital
- Expected Rovers gameplan
- Told players to keep discipline
- Can play better and will play better, but it was all about the result
- Thought it would be scrappy.
- Disappointed with quality of set plays today
- Pitman: Need to work on fitness
- He needs to step up his training
- Goalkeeper: Felt for Joe, but felt we had to take him out
- Kovar great save. He'll be good in the future. Normally find that first loans end up with lots of mistakes from goalkeepers
- Derby not the same without fans
- Expecting to be a bit more grindy. Need more discipline.
- Not playing free flowing football like last year
- Goals conceded need us to tighten up and grind out results
- Wanted to be more structured in midfield in defence.
- Sheridan had family bereavement so not been around much
- Players are good. Just told them to be more disciplined
- Players relieved. Important win

 -Pitman: Need to work on fitness
- He needs to step up his training
Clearly not happy with his attitude then. At least this is noted and as a professional sportsman needs to take action.

It was 433. The biggest thing that helped us look more solid was our FBs staying at home more.

Odimayo solid out of position

Kovar and Grounds poor as usual

Matt Smith a class above

Hope didn't stop pressing the whole game

Pitman awful, but scored so hey ho

Game Changed when j Smith come off. Zero end product once again. Stevens was lively, changed the game.

I thought we deserved to win what was a very scrappy game without much quality.
Both teams desperate for points and to avoid making a mistake.
Apart from his flap at a cross late on I thought Kovar did well, including making one good save. Hopefully he will draw some confidence from that.
Donahue excellent, and first half Payne looked lively. Baudry made a difference at the back, too.
Matt Smith also good again.
I thought Broadbent May have come on a little earlier than he did, as they were throwing crosses into the box.
I donít recall their goalie making a proper save - some woeful shooting from some good attacking positions by Pitman (almost hitting the clock first half - maybe he noticed it was 5 mins slow), Hope and Payne in particular.
I think Grounds may be suspended next game - so another defensive change required on Tuesday.
Hopefully we can build on this result as the injured players start coming back.

That and having Payne (and later J Grant) deeper, provided cover for A Grant, who was much more like himself today.

Not quite what I saw. Smith seemed to receive a hefty challenge in the first half and looked quite immobile afterwards - Really noticeable as he is so quick.

Stevens, is quick, but not as creative.
