Matt Harrold has revealed Bristol Rovers were landed with Sunday training and a handful of verbal blows by manager Paul Buckle after the 4-1 defeat at Crawley.

The winger, part of the Rovers side which has not won a match in five attempts, said the squad was made fully aware their performance was not good enough at the Broadfield Stadium on Saturday, but he insisted the weekend has been lodged firmly in the past as the Pirates try to rebuild their stuttering season.

"I've been on the receiving end of beatings like that before and it's not nice, because everybody goes home with the hump," he told the Bristol Evening Post.

"We were all in on Sunday and a few home truths were said.

"Everyone who follows the club had a bad weekend, and now we just have to put it behind us.

"Nobody is happy with how things went on Saturday, but we are only six games into the season and it's how you finish it rather than start it that matters."
