Butler out to reward fans

19 September 2017

Andy Butler says Rovers are keen to put on a good show at Arsenal on Wednesday night to reward the 5,000 fans travelling down to the Emirates Stadium.

Rovers face Arsenal on Wednesday September 20 in round three of the Carabao Cup, sponsored by Carabao Energy Drink, and have sold almost all their allocation for the game - with Butler and his team-mates appreciative of the effort put in by supporters.

He said: “It gives everyone a good day out, not just for us but the fans as well. There are not many chances to go watch your team against a top four side.

“It is fantastic. The ticket prices have been brilliant as well to encourage that support, but it still costs to get down there and the fans have put their hands into their pockets. We want to put a good performance for them.”

Butler is looking forward to the prospect of playing at the Emirates Stadium, and insists Rovers are not heading to the capital just to make up the numbers.

He added: “We are the underdogs and the pressure is on them to beat us, so we’ll just do what we can and try and put a good show on.

“As professional sportsmen we’ll approach this game like we would any other - we’ll look at their strengths and weaknesses and see where we could hurt them. We want to go there and do the best we can and try to win the game.”

Tickets for the trip to Arsenal will remain available from the Club Doncaster Box Office until 4.30pm on Tuesday September 19 or until they sell out. Tickets can be purchased in person, by calling 01302 762576 or going to
