Shaun Cummings says he is enjoying the day-to-day camaraderie of the Rovers dressing room after signing a two-month contract with the club.
The 29-year-old was without a club after leaving Rotherham United at the end of last season, and says he is pleased to be back in the game.
He says: “It was getting boring at home as I’ve been playing professionally for over 10 years, it’s nice to be back with a club and I want to contribute now.
“The whole aspect of game days and being amongst the lads is something I missed massively, the change is a big one and hard to adapt to.
“As a footballer you have to be willing to travel to wherever you need to be and I’ve done that for a couple of years now.”
Having already made his debut for the club, Cummings believes it won’t take him long to get up to full fitness.
He added: “I’d like to think I’m not far off being fully fit, I’m trying to get back up to speed because the difference between training and playing is a fair bit.
“I spoke to the manager and I know what he wants from his full-backs, I’ve got to work in training and look to force my way into the team.
“It was good to get 45 minutes in the Checkatrade Trophy, I’ve got to build on that now and hopefully more minutes will come.”
