Defender in determined mood ahead of 'Roses' fixture on Saturday

Andy Butler says he is enjoying playing first team football and wants to get on with the job in hand.

The Doncaster-born centre back is on loan from local rivals Sheffield United and had to watch from the stands as his parent club defeated his current club at the weekend.

“I’m old enough now to know that things happen in football and all I want to do is play football so I’ve come out on loan to do that,” said Butler.

“I think I’ve heard Nigel Clough say he’ll speak to me in January and then we’ll see how it goes.”

While in the side, the 31 year old is yet to taste defeat and is hopeful that that run continues when, on Saturday, Rovers travel to Spotland to face Rochdale for the first time in over a decade.

Butler, who was present alongside Luke McCullough for Tuesday’s FA Cup Round 1 win over Weston-Super-Mare, said: “They’re a good passing side who beat Walsall 4-0 when I was there. Keith Hill’s done a good job there and it will be a tough test, no doubt.

“[As for Sheffield United] They’ll contact me when I’m needed. There’s no need to contact me 24/7, they know what I’m doing, they can ring the gaffer and find out what I’m doing but I just get on with my job which is all I’ve got to do.”
