Horton wants more first-team action

19 March 2021

Branden Horton says making his league debut against Oxford United in midweek has left him wanting more first-team action.

The young defender played the final half an hour at the Kassam Stadium and says he was excited to show what he could do.

He said: “It was a dream come true to make my debut, I didn’t really have chance to get nervous so I went on and tried my best.

“When I came on they sat off a little bit and it allowed me to get forward and play with a bit of freedom.

“I think I gave the ball away with my first touch and that could have affected me, but after that I settled down and got into the game fairly comfortably.”

Born and raised in Askern, Horton says he has received plenty of messages from those who have watched him grow as a person and a player.

He added: “The support I get from my family and the people of Askern is brilliant, there are a lot of Rovers fans where I live so it’s great to have their backing.

“It’s nice having those people behind me and it gives me the edge to keep on improving and get myself in the team.

“I had loads of messages on Tuesday night and my mum and dad were buzzing once I got home after the game.”
