Rovers perfect fit for Jackson

28 January 2022

Rovers' newest signing Ben Jackson says he will leave everything on the pitch in order to help the club climb the Sky Bet League One table.

The full-back joined on loan from Huddersfield Town on Friday to provide more competition within Gary McSheffrey’s defensive ranks. He helped Bolton Wanderers to promotion from League Two in the 2020/21 season and is looking forward to testing himself in Sky Bet League One.

He said: “The move has come at the perfect time for me and the opportunity here really excites me. I wanted to find somewhere I could play games and get valuable experience under my belt. 

“The step up to League One excites me. What will make me happy is if I can come in and make an impact."

The challenge at Rovers was one Jackson relished when deciding the move to South Yorkshire was the right one for him. 

He added: “At Huddersfield, I was close to breaking into the first-team but I could not quite get there but I maintained that if I was to go out on loan it needed to be at the perfect club and for me that is Rovers.

“As a young player you are always looking for ways to challenge yourself and the position Rovers find themselves in is unfortunate. I want to be part of the team and try and help the team stay up. 

“I leave everything I have on the pitch. I love to attack as much as I love to defend. Clean sheets are just as important to me as goals and assists.” 

Jackson is available for selection for Saturday's Sky Bet League One match against Plymouth Argyle.
