MICK HARFORD HEAPS PRAISE ON PLAYERS AFTER 4-0 WIN OVER DONCASTER ROVERS

23 March 2019

Town boss Mick Harford heaped praise on his squad after they put four past Doncaster Rovers without reply in a dominant performance at Kenilworth Road this afternoon in Sky Bet League One.

Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu broke the deadlock when he curled the ball past Marko Marosi just after the half hour mark, before Danny Hylton doubled the lead from close range in the 57th minute.

Kazenga LuaLua confidently extended the lead with eight minutes to go as he rolled it into the bottom corner, before Luke Berry fired in from the edge of the box in excellent fashion in added time to round off a truly outstanding performance.

Harford said: "I thought it was an all-round performance. Firstly I would like to say without the ball I thought we were excellent. We had a good shape defensively, they had a couple of chances early on, half chances, but over the course of the 90 minutes without the ball I thought we were exceptional.

"Some of the defending, the shape of the back four was excellent and going forward we were a threat all afternoon, in terms of different kinds of chances, we put the ball in the box, we looked dangerous from set-plays, we looked dangerous on the counter-attack, so overall it's a real pleasing performance and I am just so proud of the players.

"Absolutely proud of the players and it's testament to them, because each and every day they come in, they work hard on and off the pitch, they're a great group and I have got to be honest with you, the fans shouldn't be singing my name, they should be singing the players' names.

"I thought it was a real, real good performance, within that team performance there were some good individual performances, but I am not going to single anyone out, I think each and everyone of the squad have contributed. The way they make a contribution on and off the bench and just overall it's a good day for the football club in terms of the result, in terms of where we are and to the levels we are playing at."
