Butler Braced for Busy Month

5 January 2015

Defender eyes fourth round draw and says "anything is possible."

Andy Butler revealed that he is hoping that the New Year will provide a clean slate for both him and Doncaster Rovers.

The Sheffield United loanee was speaking after Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Bristol City at Keepmoat Stadium which meant both sides will have an eye on tonight’s fourth round draw.

“It will be a test down there but we're in the hat for the fourth round and we'll see who we get,” he said.

“We're a little disappointed that we could have won it but that's the nature of football and we'll go away full of confidence and the pressure will be on them.

“We're really looking forward to this year, we've put the home form of 2014 behind us and we want to kick on.”

The Doncaster-born 31 year old was coy over any potential permanent switch from Bramall Lane to Keepmoat Stadium, though.

“I’ve got to talk to Sheffield United, speak to them and see what happens. I can’t really say much as it’s up in the air and we'll get it sorted out.

“I’m really enjoying my time here and the manager's brilliant with me, as are the players and I’ve loved every minute and I love playing for my home team.

“It's a little surreal because I thought it would never happen,” he admitted.

“Anything's possible. The top four might be out of reach but fifth place is achievable with a game in hand, the players we have and the work ethic around the place.”
