Sadlier believes he is learning a lot at Rovers

19 November 2019

Kieran Sadlier is looking forward to a run of games after Rovers match vs Shrewsbury Town was called off due to the international break.

It has been ten days since Rovers last played so Tuesday’s Emirates FA Cup replay against AFC Wimbledon has come at a good time to prevent Rovers from going a full fortnight without a competitive match.

“Obviously we didn’t want a replay, we wanted to win down there but - in the sense that we haven’t got a league game for two weeks - it is good to have one on Tuesday,” he said.

“We haven’t had much time off since the first game. We’ve just been trying to make the week as normal as possible – we’ve been back in for the last two days preparing.

“We’ve had a few games off so it’s a bit stop start but the next international break isn’t until March so we’re hoping the weather holds up so we can get a good run of games and build some momentum.”

Sadlier is Rovers’ top scorer this season scoring seven times across all competitions including a goal in the last three consecutive Sky Bet League One matches.

“I want to score and create goals and I like the pressure of having to do that – I feel I thrive under that pressure,” he added.

“I’ve gone upfront and played there a few times this season but that was new to me and something I’d never really done before. I’ve been pleased with my goal return when I’ve gone up there so that’s something I’m learning.

“I’m relatively young but at any age you can learn new things and new ways of doing things. I’m learning every day on the training pitch – different ways to play, receiving the ball at different angles, and trying to improve my game.”
