Butler wants players to show hunger

4 April 2021

Andy Butler has called for his side to show more hunger when they come up against relegation-threatened Bristol Rovers on Monday.

After a 1-0 defeat to Charlton Athletic on Good Friday, the Rovers boss is wanting to see more fight from his players in the south west.  

He said: “The players have to be ready and have a hunger for the Bristol Rovers game because it is a really important one for us to help get us going again. 

“It is important that we get our form back on track but also our away form has needed some improvement for a while so hopefully this is something we will address at Bristol. 

“Everyone seems fine after Friday’s game – we just have a few tired bodies in the building, which is understandable.” 

Bristol Rovers are currently 23rd in Sky Bet League One, having lost their last five games on the bounce but Butler is not taking their form for granted.  

He added: “They will be scrapping for their lives and I am expecting a tough game. 

“A new manager has gone in there and hopefully we can go there, dictate play and put on a good performance to stop this run of form. 

“Hopefully goals will come to us. Apart from the results, I think I am doing the right things and sometimes you get the rub of the green, sometimes you don’t. Most of the games we’ve lost, we’ve lost by fine margins.”
