Cameron John is looking forward to his return after being side-lined in recent weeks with an injury.

The 20-year-old returned to his parent club Wolverhampton Wanderers to receive treatment but is now back at Rovers and raring to go.

“I got injured the day before a game and in training, it was an accident. One of my team mates fell on my leg and my ankle swelled over,” he told Wolves media team.

“It was unfortunate circumstances. It’s given me time to refresh myself and get a new sense of motivation, and now I’m raring to go.

“It was a bit annoying at the time because I was playing and building momentum, but these setbacks push you on further.”

John feels he has settled in well at Rovers and is learning and improving every day.

“It’s been a new experience for me to go out on my first loan to League One and I’ve felt like it’s been a good experience,” he added.

“You’ve got to concentrate for the whole 90 minutes because you can easily have one lapse in concentration, and they’ll pounce and score. So, it’s been great for me to stay switched on for the whole game, to know my job and my role.

“Last year you could maybe get away with strikers missing three or four chances, whereas in League One, strikers don’t really need too many chances. It’s been a great learning curve going up against these players, which has been a goal of mine since last year, to go out and prove myself.”

One of the main differences between U23s and League One is the fans and John wants to repay Rovers supporters once he returns from injury.

“The fans have been great ever since me and Niall walked in the door,” he said.

“They’ve always given me support and backing in every game I play. It’s been really nice to have that feeling from the fans. Hopefully when I’m back I can repay their faith.”
