Lawlor eyes consistency

2 March 2017

Ian Lawlor believes consistency is key as Rovers look to close in on promotion to Sky Bet League One.

The goalkeeper has played in every league game since signing from Manchester City in January, and believes that the team are ready for the latter part of the season.

“Every team is fighting to try and go above us so we have to make sure we keep up the consistency which we’ve shown all season. We’ve come out the other side of a sticky spell and haven’t lost too much ground,” he said. 

“It was massive to get the win against Cambridge, we had a tough couple of weeks before that game where we didn’t pick up as many points as we would have liked.

“We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves, we’re building something here and it’s important that we take small steps. We’re working hard and the winning mentality within the team is helping us massively.”

The Irishman has slotted into the side seamlessly with the 22-year-old saying he was keen to impress his new team-mates when he joined the club.

“I wanted the boys to trust me when I first came here so I was eager to show them what I could do. They’ve helped me to progress since I signed and I feel comfortable within the group now,” he added.

“As a young keeper, I’m grateful for the faith the manager has shown in me by putting me straight into the side. There are a number of different pressures you have to deal with but that’s something I strive on, I want to maintain the standards I’ve set for myself.

“I’ve loved every minute here, from the first day I trained I saw the quality in the team and everything around the club is in place for a successful future here.”
