Andrews: 'I know I can do it in this league'

8 July 2022

He has already had a taste of Sky Bet League Two football and Rovers new boy Josh Andrews is determined to make a bigger impact in the division in the coming season.

Andrews has signed a six-month loan deal from Birmingham City and is focused on accelerating his development with Rovers after a temporary stint at Rochdale last term.

“It was invaluable for me, to get to know the league and some of the teams we’ll be coming up against,” the 20-year-old said.

“I was doing well at the start and then I had a couple of injuries that hampered me a bit. Towards the end I felt very confident, got used to the league and I know I can do it in this league.

“It’s about repeating it this season and doing it even better this time.

“I’m glad I’ve got it done early so I can get to know the lads, get to know the system and hopefully fit in really well.”

Andrews is set to make his first appearance in Rovers colours in Saturday’s friendly at Nuneaton Borough.

After making 21 appearances for Rochdale last season, the 6ft5 striker has been tasked with adding to that by parent club Birmingham.

He said: “They want me to get some experience, get some appearances, grow as a player and develop.

“I’m still only young, 20-years-old and I’ve still got plenty of room for improvement. I’m looking forward to hopefully achieving that here.

“I can’t wait for the game on Saturday. Hopefully I’ll score and I can celebrate with the fans.”
