Butler ready for Cod Army test

16 November 2017

Andy Butler says the game against Fleetwood Town this weekend is a chance for Rovers to show what they can do against a team challenging at the top end of Sky Bet League One.

Rovers have lost just one of their past six league games, and Butler believes they can continue their momentum against the Cod Army.

“Fleetwood are a good side but we enjoy playing against the better teams in the league, we’ve picked up some positive results so far,” he said.

“It’s a chance to prove to people out there that we’re capable of challenging at the top end of the table and test ourselves against the better players.

“The league has improved a lot since we were last in this division but as a team so have we, the club has changed a lot since then and we’re in a much better position.”

The central defender has been a part of a back three in recent weeks alongside Joe Wright and Mathieu Baudry, a role which Butler has embraced.

“We’re enjoying what we’re doing at the minute, it has been tough for us in stages but we’ve come together as a team and we’re playing some really good football,” he added.

“It’s about sticking together and doing the right things when you’re going through a bad time as the good times will always follow.

“The results earlier in the season didn’t reflect how we were playing but we seem to have been getting some consistency in the past few weeks.”
