Ennis on the hunt for more goals

29 January 2020

Niall Ennis hopes his strike against Southend United can kick start a goal scoring run in the first team.

Ennis’ effort set Rovers on their way to a fairly comfortable 3-1 victory over the Blues but Ennis believes Rovers still have more to give.

“I got the goal but I think I’ve played better in other games. I’ve set my standards and I want to live up to those standards and remain at those standards,” he said.

“We went to get the result and that’s what we’ve got but I think we could have done better with the performance. It’s a league about results so we’ll take the three points and move on to Saturday.

“We want to get the performance and the result. I think it shows the standards that we’ve set. We’ve won 3-1 and we think we should have done better but we’ve got to build on it.”

Ennis has been working closely with assistant manager Jamie Smith on his positional play, and believes the extra work on the training ground is starting to show in his performances.

“I’ve known Jamie for a long time and he’s been helping me a lot. I’ve been looking to improve positionally and it paid off Tuesday,” he added.

“He used to work at Wolves when I was younger and then when we were playing against West Bromwich Albion in the U23s, he was the U18s and U23s manager so I’d always seen him.

“I think having that bond before Doncaster really helped me bed in at this club quicker.”
