Rowe impressed with squad quality

1 April 2018

Tommy Rowe believes Rovers have enough quality within their ranks to finish as high as possible as they head into the final stages of their first season back in Sky Bet League One.

Rovers face AFC Wimbledon on Monday at the Keepmoat Stadium, and Rowe feels there is some great talent that will see them over the line.

“I’ve spoken about it before, the potential that this team has will hopefully be shown in the next four or five games, we’re looking for a strong finish that can set us up for next year,” he said.

“There are some good players on the bench and there are others that are coming back from injury and we all want to help each other kick on towards the end of the season, hopefully we maintain that culture and we can only improve.

“It’s been a tough couple of months for us, we’ve had players out with injuries and so it’s not been easy for us to be at our best, we want to push on towards the end of the season and kick on from there.”

Rowe himself has missed just one league game this season, and he feels his versatility and desire to do well for the team has helped him to become a mainstay in the side.

“I’ve played in a lot of different positions this season and that can only be a help to us, you like to build up momentum in a certain position, you see it with James Coppinger and how he’s thrived this season,” he added.

“I’m happy to play wherever, it can only help if everyone is a team player, it’s not just about myself and that’s what I said when I came here, the older I get, the more mature I can be with playing in different positions.

“I’ve played a lot of games this season and the gaffer has shown a lot of faith in me to continue in these important games, I’ve played where I’ve maybe not been at full strength but that’s the commitment that all of the players here show.”
