PROGRAMME | Joe Wright eyeing regular game time

7 December 2019

After sitting out the first part of the season through injury, Joe Wright has been chomping at the bit to get back out on the pitch.

As Rovers were having games called off during the early stages of the campaign, Wright was eyeing up a chance to get plenty of games under his belt once the re-arranged fixtures come around.

“From a selfish point of view, I was glad that some games got postponed because it meant I didn’t miss any many games as I could have,” he said.

“It gives me a chance to be involved when they are rearranged and hopefully, I can help the team to pick up some wins.

“I had that many weekends off that now if we haven’t got a fixture on a Saturday, I’m frustrated that I can’t play.”

The postponements have put Rovers up to four games behind some teams in the league so while this stage of the season tends to be where the league table shows a true reflection of each team’s quality, Wright doesn’t see that as the case for Rovers.

“We’re probably in a little bit of a false position in the table at the moment with the number of games we have in hand on some teams,” he added.

“Hopefully when we do catch-up, we can add a few more points to our total and climb into a better position.

“Normally around this period is when the table speaks for itself but that isn’t quite the case for us because on our day, we’re a team that are capable of beating anyone in this league.”
