New Signing Enda Stevens spoke to Rovers Player about Saturday's win & his loan move from Aston Villa.

“It was an impressive win for Rovers in my first game and we knew they would be hard. They started good and were on top of us early but we did not give them many chances. We gave away a soft goal against the run of play but we came out and showed how well we could play. 

"I have not been here long but the gaffer was impressed how we played and set up the ball to attack them in the second half. We pressed them when we needed to and stood off at the right times. Hopefully we can now take this in to tonight’s game. I have played in the Premier League and the game last Saturday against QPR felt like a game at that level. This team can play football.”

Enda spoke about how the move came about adding;“My move here was late in the day on Thursday. I had been training when the club secretary got hold of me just before I was about to leave. I did not have second thoughts and said where do I sign get me there now. I was not going to miss the chance to play in the Championship, so once the forms had been signed I spoke to the gaffer and got up here. 

"I stopped in a hotel Thursday night ready for training the next day and my first meet up with the rest of the lads. I just want to play football wherever and whenever I can. I got knocked back with an injury last season and broke my toe at Notts County but now I’m back fully fit and raring to go.

“I’m looking to keep my head down and work hard for Rovers. I want to get plenty of games in and stop longer if it all goes well. All the lads have made me very welcome here. It’s a great level of football to play at and I will stay focussed on my game and working as a team with the lads. 

"I know that Birmingham will be hard but QPR are one of the top sides and we showed them we could play but there is not a big gap between top and bottom in the league. I am not looking any further forward than tonight.”
