Ennis ready to get going again

Rovers forward Niall Ennis is pleased to be back involved at the club after recovering from a hamstring injury.

The on-loan Wolves man is back in the squad for Saturday's trip to AFC Wimbledon after completing 45 minutes for the U23 side against Walsall in midweek.
 
"It is good to be back around the team. It was frustrating being away, but we know there were better facilities at Wolves and it's important to make sure things were fully sorted out and make sure I was right," he said.
 
"I love football so want to be involved rather than be on the sidelines watching. It was good to blow the cobwebs off in midweek and build my fitness up - I felt like I was doing good before my injury, but I still had more to give and now I want to get back to a level of sharpness and show what I can do."
 
This season has been Ennis' first playing at senior level after impressing in Wolves' U23 side, and he feels like he has learnt a lot from the experience.
 
"Now I’m in the men’s game, the real professional games, and I’m playing against centre backs who are probably in their prime and used to the league," he added.
 
“Maybe when I’ve been playing in the U23, I’ve been up against someone younger than me - but now I’m up against people who really want to stop me scoring in their goal for important reasons. It’s helping me know how to position my body and things like that so it’s good.”
