Syers: It's Great To Be Back

David Syers spoke to Rovers Player after returning to action against Yeovil Town on Saturday.

Syers, who played fifteen minutes against the Glovers, has been frustrated at not being involved through injury and is now just looking to play as much football as possible.



“It’s great to be back on the pitch,” he said


“It’s been a long month for me, its always frustrating to be out thankfully it’s not as serious as it might have been. I just want to build up game time as much as possible now.


“If I am needed to start, I could do it, fitness is one of my strengths. John [Lundstram] and Keegs [Paul Keegan] did well [against Yeovil] but whether I’m called upon to start or come on from the bench I will be ready.”


Syers admitted that performance levels had dropped slightly in the past few weeks, however he was confident that the team will build on the second half performance levels shown this weekend.


“I think everybody dropped a little bit, and as a team its been a case of doing the easy thing and waiting for someone else to make it happen; thinking someone will do something special rather than playing as we know we can.


“It’ showed a lot better second half against a team that had won eight in a row. We pinned them in their own half for large periods of time, that’s what we’ve been doing well all season. We’ve been stronger than teams, pinning them in and then taking the chances when they have come – the only difference between a draw and a win on Saturday was that we didn’t take all of our chances.


Speaking about Shrewsbury Town Syers said: “I’ve played against them quite a few times, it’s a tough place to go but there really are no easy games.


“You could look at our next two opponents and think that six points but they’re both on really good runs at the minute and are battling for their lives - it going to be two very tough games.


“It’s not just a case of turning up, we have to turn up like we did second half against Yeovil and take our chances.”
