Whiteman: That was my best ever goal

8 October 2017

Ben Whiteman felt Rovers fans who saw his hat-trick against Southend witnessed the best goal he has ever scored.

The midfielder struck three times inside the opening 10 minutes of the second period, with the second a sweetly-struck half-volley which clipped the underside of the bar.

Whiteman said: "It's probably the best goal I've ever scored, I've not scored that many good goals.

"In the very first game I hit one off the bar and had one cleared off the line, luckily it fell to me nicely and I've tucked it away."

Whiteman is on loan from Sky Bet Championship side Sheffield United until January, and would be keen to remain at the Keepmoat Stadium until the summer.

He added: "The main thing for me is to keep playing games and getting experience, I'd definitely like to stay.

"I like it here, the boys are different class - the gaffer, coaching staff, and everyone who works here have been unbelievable with me."
