Butler looking forward to Crewe test

8 March 2021

Andy Butler wants his players to get on the front foot against Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday night.

Rovers have won both games since Butler was appointed as manager, and he says the challenge now is to keep that run going. 

He said: “I think it will be a tough game, they kept the ball really well when they came to our place and took all three points. 

“They’ve had some really good results this season, they’ll be looking to bounce back from the weekend. 

“I’m focusing on what my team can do and how they can exploit Crewe, I feel we can be better on the ball than we were at the weekend.” 

With Tuesday’s game at the Alexandra Stadium the third in a week for Butler’s side, he says the communication between himself and his medical staff continues to be crucial. 

He added: “We’re always speaking with the medical staff to see where the players are at between games at the minute. 

“We’re trying to take it one game at a time but you have to have one eye on the upcoming fixtures and who might need a rest here and there.  

“The players get a wellness chart to fill in ahead of every day’s training session so we know how they’re feeling mentally and physically.”

Butler also said Fejiri Okenabirhie was close to a return from injury and may be included in the squad for the trip to Crewe.
