Let's Raise It - N'Guessan

22 September 2015

Front man says players must take their chance when given the opportunity.

Dany N’Guessan has said that the intensity in the camp since Rob Jones has taken over as interim head coach has been noticeable.

The French forward replaced striker Andy Williams in the early stages of Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Oldham Athletic and went on to scoop the Man of the Match award.

“Rob is a big player and he knows how to talk to players and he's a strong character who knows what he wants to do,” said N’Guessan.

“When he first came in he said he wants to take us forward.

“I played in the reserves on Wednesday and the intensity has been high in training to be fair and it's been good.”

With a physical approach to centre forward play, the bustling N’Guessan has cast aside any potential niggles and thrown his hat in to the ring for a starting spot on Saturday when Rovers make the short journey to Bramall Lane for a key clash against Sheffield United.

“I just try to take my chance,” said N’Guessan.

“I'm ready to run. To be honest my fitness is improving and I was trying and most people saw that but I was having to stretch on the pitch as I've been out a long time.

“Once I get back to my fitness though I think my finishing might improve also!

“Whenever I play I want to do my best which is all I can do. Whether I play or not, as a footballer you have to be ready.

“(United) is a big game for us, we need to pick up some points and I think the manager will raise the intensity once again.”
