Louis Jones feels he is more than ready to make his first-team debut for Rovers in the EFL Trophy game against Bradford City on Tuesday night.

The 21-year-old goalkeeper believes the work put in throughout his time in the youth setup at the club has provided him with a good platform to impress.

He said: “The manager has always said that he wants me to keep pushing and see myself as a future number one, it’s down to me to get there.

“I know what he wants from a goalkeeper and what I need to work on to reach that level, all I need to do is keep concentrating and working every day on those things.

“I know the system and the gaffer knows me, everything is in place now more than ever to kick on and play more games.”

Having been on the bench several times in recent seasons, Jones says he learnt a lot from last season’s number one Seny Dieng during his time at the Keepmoat Stadium.

He added: “We had Seny last year and his distribution was top class, sometimes we looked dangerous from our own goal-kicks.

“I learnt a lot from him and towards the end of his loan we were really close, he was very relaxed when he played the game and everyone could see that.

“That is a big part that I took from his game, he always knew what he was doing and was always in control when it came to taking crosses and commanding his area.”
