Cotts: I Want To Do Well For Rovers

30 November 2012

Winger David Cotterill spoke to Rovers Player about his time at Rovers so far and his ambitions for the future.

The Welshman is clearly enjoying his football under manager Dean Saunders and his appetite to succeed is visible to see by all.

The former Wigan and Sheffield United man has started the season like a man on a mission, having scoring eight goals already this season, Cotterill is looking to surpass his half season target.  

“I’m happy to be contributing to the team,” he said

“I want to score as many goals as possible as well as create goals too. The most important thing is that the team does well aswell as players individually.

“Everyone is doing really well, we know that as a squad we’re a bit thin so it’s pleasing to be in the position that we are at the moment.

“It’s where we want to be and it’s probably where we expect to be inside the camp.

“We’ve got great team spirit, and have done all the time I’ve been here. Everyone has stuck together and we all want to win together but most of all we work hard for each other and hopefully that continues.”

With eight goals already this term, Cotterill has revealed that he is already close to his mid season target, a feat which he hopes that will earn him Welsh International recognition once again.

“I want ten goals by Christmas,” said Cotterill

“Obviously I’m not going to stop when I reach that target, hopefully I will keep going and help the team as much as possible.

“Promotion is the target; we all want to achieve that so hopefully we can make it a successful season. 

“I want to try and force myself back into the Wales squad, but my main priority is to do well for Doncaster - if I do well here hopefully that call will come.

Although he will not be available for the game on Saturday, Cotterill will keep a close eye on the tie and support the rest of the squad in trying to get into the hat for the third round. 

“It’s always tricky playing the same team in a matter of days, not to mention the fact Humey [Iain Hume] is suspended along with myself.  It does give others the chance to play, on the otherhand - hopefully we can go there and get the victory.”
