Blythe looking forward to facing Scunthorpe

9 November 2021

Ben Blythe spoke to the media ahead of the Papa John’s Trophy tie at Scunthorpe United on Tuesday night.

The young defender could come into the starting XI with Rovers needing a point to secure progression in the competition.

On adding to the few minutes he got at the weekend:

“I’m looking forward to it, it’s another chance to show the manager what I can do and how I’m progressing.

“I went on up top at the weekend and probably haven’t done that for a few years, but I knew I had to do a job for the team.

“I didn’t feel too much pressure and I knew I had a job to do in helping the lads see the game out.”

On preparing for Scunthorpe:

“It’s an extra game for the young lads to play and there is a lot riding on it with us needing something to go through.

“Everyone is getting minutes on the pitch, we’re all becoming more experienced and more mature.

“You’d have thought Scunthorpe will go strong with the new manager in there and we know what they’re about now.

“The analyst does a lot of work on who we’re coming up against and then it’s down to us to adapt to that.”
