Grant battling for promotion

13 March 2017

Midfielder Conor Grant is enjoying playing in a team battling for promotion, as Rovers continue in their search for the Sky Bet League Two title.

The Everton loanee spent the first half of the season with Ipswich Town, before retuning to Doncaster for the second time in his career. 

And Grant is confident that he can keep developing at Rovers, by helping them back into Sky Bet League One. 

“It has been a bit of a whirlwind for me, the Ipswich experience was a different experience for me but it was something I able to learn from,” said Grant.

“I want to challenge myself and I want to be the best player that I can possibly be, it’s important I take all these experiences with me and keep learning from them. 

“I feel like this is the first time in my career that I have joined a team that are really flying and we are looking up all the time instead of down and I feel like I have relished in this side and I want more of that feeling.”

Rovers face Notts County on Tuesday night, hoping to keep the gap to second placed Plymouth Argyle to four points. 

And Grant thinks that a lot of teams have changed their style of play to try and match the league leaders. 

“Notts County are a very physical team and they are very well organised, they have been playing the same formation for the past few games, which gives them very good structure,” he added. 

“I think the last four or five games a lot of teams have set up differently when they have faced up to how they normally play, so we have to take that as a compliment really.

“We have a lot of quality in our changing rooms and teams know that when they come here, because they are thinking of ways to try and stop us playing.”
