Find a Balance

Defender Andy Butler talks about Cambridge United and his pride at being club captain.

Andy Butler wants Rovers to strike it right when Cambridge visit Doncaster for the first time in over a dozen years.

The visitors have not won on Doncaster soil for more than 40 years and were present when Rovers won promotion from this division in 2004 but Butler appreciates that there is a weight of expectation to repeat the trick.

“There’s an expectation on us, but there’s also an expectation on us from within the dressing room to do well,” he said.

“I still think we’ve got one of the best squads in the league, its now up to us do our talking on the pitch. 

“The expectation is there and rightly so, but other teams have got off to poor starts so it just takes a little bit of time – time quickly does run out though and I’m confident we can get a win.

“We’ve had two different games to be honest. Accrington we were too expansive and that caused us problems and on Saturday (against Crawley Town) we were too defensive which caused us problems too so it’s finding that happy medium to get the good performance and the three points we want.

A proud Doncastrian, Butler has been bestowed the club captaincy and spoke about his pride in representing his hometown and an ever strengthening bond with the Keepmoat faithful.

“I try to do as much as I can,” he said.

“While I’ve been here I’ve tried to help as much as possible. Being a Doncaster lad it obviously means quite a lot to captain the club. 

“I didn’t think that I’d play for the club at one stage but it’s an honour to be a club captain and I really enjoy every part of it. The fans have taken to me and it’s a buzz to be around here when things are going well.

“They have every right to voice their opinions and it’s up to us to change their opinions and prove that we are good.”
