Josef Bursik feels having regular game time at Rovers is already improving him as a goalkeeper.
The Stoke City loanee has started every league game so far this season, and believes his performance levels are already higher than when he first arrived.
He said: “Without a doubt my game has improved playing regular football here, it’s a good level and I’m really enjoying it.
“As a goalkeeper it’s important to play plenty of games early on in your career, it plays a big part in your development.
“I think as a group we’ve made a good start to the season and we’ve improved so much in a really short space of time.”
After his time away with the England under-21 squad, Bursik is back and raring to get going again in a Rovers shirt, starting with a trip to Portsmouth this weekend.
He added: “We’ve got games every few days now and I think it will be a test of our character but we’re more than ready for that.
“I’ve got some good memories of playing against Portsmouth as I made my league debut against them last season.
“I’m looking forward to going to Fratton Park and hopefully getting a really positive result with the boys.”
