Sims buzzing to re-join Rovers

28 January 2021

Josh Sims feels he has unfinished business with Rovers after re-joining the club on loan for the remainder of the 2020/21 campaign.

Sims' return to the Keepmoat Stadium was confirmed on Wednesday, and he says the success of his initial loan spell had a big part to play in the move. 

He said: “I’m delighted to be back, it’s been a strange few weeks since the injury but I knew I had a decision to make about my future. 

“It’s always hard when you enjoy your last six months of football as much as I did, to look past that so that’s a big reason why I’ve come back. 

“There’s a sense of unfinished business which the gaffer mentioned too, I’ve been following the results since I’ve last played and they’ve been doing really well.” 

After his first spell with the club was cut short due to a hamstring injury, Sims says he is edging closer to full fitness after more than a month out. 

He added: “The hamstring is doing well, throughout the rehab I’ve had no reactions so I’m hoping it will be fine going forward. 

“With that type of injury it’s important not to rush back and end up pulling it again so we had in mind to take it a week or so longer to make sure it’s right. 

“It’s tough missing games and I’ve been keeping a close eye on things, I enjoyed being here so I’m buzzing to get back to it.”
