Kieran Sadlier says he’ll be ready to go when called upon by manager Grant McCann following a mini pre-season at the club.
Sadlier put pen to paper on an 18-month contract in December and is ready to hit the ground running.
“The plan was to come in and do a mini pre-season. I haven’t played since November 4 so it’s been tough but I’ve enjoyed it and I’m feeling much fitter now,” he said.
“I think I’m ready to be thrown into a game now but that’s not my decision and I don’t know if the international clearance is through yet but I will be ready when I’m called upon.
“It’s a hard team to get into at the moment, they’re on fire, all the boys are scoring goals but I’ll back myself, work hard and see what happens.”
Sadlier said the squad have made him feel welcome and he’s enjoying a higher intensity of training.
“There were other options available to me but I was always going to come to Rovers, I like working with Grant McCann and I liked what he was doing as an assistant at Peterborough,” he said.
“Everyone was welcoming and I knew a few of the lads so they’ve shown me around. I’ve really enjoyed it and I’m settling in well.
“I think everyone can see the standard, we’re doing very well and pushing up the league. You can see that in training and the intensity is higher than I was used to but the more I’m settling in, the more I’m getting up to speed and the more I’m enjoying it.”
Rovers return to the Keepmoat Stadium to take on Burton Albion on Saturday January 19, tickets available from tickets.clubdoncaster.co.uk.
