Butler pleased with players' enthusiasm

4 March 2021

Andy Butler says he’s been impressed with the way the players have taken on board what he wants from them since taking over.

The new manager got off to a winning start against Portsmouth on Tuesday, and says the squad have shown a great willingness to learn. 

He said: “I’m not going to tweak too much because I feel we’re in a very good position as a team and as a football club. 

“I like to build from the back and play through the thirds, I want my players to be on the front foot and put the opposition under pressure. 

“We spoke to the players about making it harder for teams we’re up against, we’re a good footballing team but I felt we could be better.” 

The next test for Butler’s Rovers side is against Plymouth Argyle at the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday, and he says it will be another tough test. 

He added: “Any side managed by Ryan Lowe always works hard, we went down there and it wasn’t a great result for us. 

“We’ll look at them and see where we can exploit them, they’re an excellent side but my focus is on getting another positive performance from us on home soil.”
