Andy Butler says he has used his time out of the Rovers side to reflect on how the 2017/18 campaign has gone so far.
The club captain could make his first start in almost three months against Bury on Tuesday after returning from a knee injury, and has used that time to look for ways to improve himself.
He said: "I love playing games of football so being out injured isn't something I enjoy, it's given me a chance to reflect and I used it as a chance to strengthen my body back up.
"I wouldn't say I needed rest but I think it has definitely helped me to look back and see where I can improve based on how I've played so far this season.
"I think it's been a pretty good season, a few people doubted whether or not I could play in League One again but I feel great and I always knew I would adapt to it well enough."
Rovers are currently on a five-game unbeaten run in Sky Bet League One, and Butler says they will look to keep pushing further up the table with six league games remaining.
He added: "We've reached 50 points and it's about pushing on now, people will see that we're safe but we don't want to ease off and we have five big games to go.
"Getting in the top 10 would be a good achievement and we feel we should be higher, the other promoted clubs are above us at the moment but with the players we have we feel we should be higher in the table.
"At the moment we're on a great run of form, I went to most games while I've been injured and it has been a joy to watch because we have been playing some decent stuff."
