Fowler Looking To Take His Chance

Rovers Player caught up with midfielder Lee Fowler who spoke about getting his chance in the side under Brian Flynn.

Fowler who arrived from Fleetwood Town just over a month ago, made his Rovers debut against Colchester United and added to his appearance tally on Saturday at Gigg Lane against Bury.

“It’s been a tough month, I’ve been itching to play so hopefully now I can keep playing,” he said

“I didn’t want my chance to come from an injury to anybody else, but I’ve got the chance now and I am hoping that I will build on it.

“At the end of the day I’ve got to look after myself and I’ve got to give a good account of myself so hopefully I can do that on the pitch.

“Doncaster have given me this chance; I need to play football at a good level and Doncaster is a very good club.

“The lads have been on a fantastic run; Dave Syers and Paul Keegan have been brilliant together, one does the ugly stuff and the other scores goals. Hopefully I can add a little bit of something different with my passing and guile.

“I like to keep the ball; I’m still a little bit tentative because I’ve been playing at a level that is below this one so I don’t want to be hitting balls that are going to put me under pressure.

“I like to link up play with short passes that’s how I play my football. I play short passes because it sucks people out of position, but I have got a range of passing too; I have to be careful with that though and be sure not give the ball away. Hopefully I can build up confidence, play a few more games and see an improved range of passing.”

Dean Saunders’ departure from the club has not altered Lee’s desire to impress at Rovers after being given the chance to play at in League One.

“It’s part of football managers go, players go, if you do well you either get sold or go and manage another club. Obviously it was disappointing [Dean’s departure], but it wasn’t just Dean who gave me a 

chance it was the club as well and hopefully if I get a chance on the pitch I will take it.

“I’ve known Brian [Flynn] longer than I’ve known Dean. Brian tried to sign me when I was 13 and he was my Wales U21s manager as well. He’s been in the backroom staff with Dean for quite a while now so it that word ‘continuity’ again.”
