Jacob Ramsey says his Rovers debut was pretty amazing after his brace helped his side on the way to a 3-0 win over Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park.
The Aston Villa youngster joined Rovers on loan on deadline day and was an unused substitute during Saturday’s defeat to Fleetwood Town, but he hit the ground running with a fantastic performance in the middle of the park.
“It was pretty amazing to be fair,” said Ramsey.
“I think I should have scored a hat-trick, but I got two decent goals. I was disappointed to miss the first chance, but all the lads said to me to keep going, there’s another chance, and at half-time the gaffer said there’s another chance and two came up and I took both of them.
“I’ve always scored goals since I was little. I used to play as a striker but I’ve dropped back a bit but last season I scored a lot of goals and I’ve just been trying to continue that.”
Ramsey did not find out until Tuesday morning that he would be making his first league start but he says he was ready to hit the ground running.
“The gaffer didn’t really give anyone any idea who was starting, I got to the hotel on Tuesday morning and found out and I was buzzing,” he added.
“I felt a bit nervous but when you get a touch on the pitch it all goes away and it’s just excitement really.
“Finding out that I was starting, I never believed that I would score – it was a good feeling and after the result on Saturday, we were looking to bounce back and got the right result so we’re all happy.”
