Buckle has won just two league games as Bristol Rovers manager

Bristol Rovers manager Paul Buckle believes his side are "not being rewarded" for their performances.

Rovers were beaten 3-1 by Wycombe Wanderers in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday, their third straight defeat.

"We don't seem to be getting any reward. You need an ounce of luck and at the moment the players are getting nothing," he told BBC Radio Bristol.

"I feel for them - but it's up to us to turn it around."

He continued: "We created lots of chances and it seems that we miss one and then they go up the other end and finish. They've had four good attempts on goal and scored three goals.

Rovers hurt by defeats - Buckle

"That's been the story of the last three games but sometimes that can happen to you."

Rovers have not won in the league since 16 August, against Northampton, and currently sit 14th in the table.

"Me and the players aren't used to losing games. They are winners, I am too, and it hurts, it's not a nice feeling," he added.

"We are disappointed to be out but now we will focus on the league.

"We'll win games this season it's just frustrating at the moment. When we get our victory it will be sweet."
