Trollope calls for calm heads

Manager Paul Trollope called for a `steady nerve` from everyone associated with Bristol Rovers after the 1-0 home defeat to Walsall.The Pirates have won only once in eight games and Trollope is coming under pressure from disgruntled fans who chanted "what a load of rubbish" at the final whistle.Richard Taundry fired home the 32nd-minute winner after Alex Nicholls had robbed Jeff Hughes, for whom the match turned into a nightmare after he saw a late penalty saved by Clayton Ince."It's a time for a steady nerve. Things are not going well for us at the moment and had we scored the penalty most people would have said we were well worth a point," said Trollope."We have a lot of injuries and hopefully some of them will have cleared by Monday's home game against Charlton. We have signed Paul Heffernan on loan and I thought he showed some nice touches on his debut. The plan is to get another striker in and we hope that will happen over the weekend."We made a bad mistake for the Walsall goal and when Jeff Hughes came to take his penalty he had suffered a knock 10 minutes earlier. Heffernan wanted to take it, but Jeff insisted he was our penalty taker and that shows some character."
