VIEWS FROM THE DRESING ROOM

Buckle pleased with Rovers 'resilience'

Bristol Rovers manager Paul Buckle told BBC Radio Bristol:

"We're disappointed with the goals we conceded because we are better than that.

"But ultimately we knew we were going to have to withstand some pressure today and we've done that.

"I doubt there will be many teams that come here and score three goals so it's fantastic."
