Rovers 'are getting stronger each week' says Younger

3 March 2022

Ollie Younger believes Rovers are getting stronger as a group with each passing week as they head into the final ten games of the campaign.

Rovers travel to Cheltenham Town this weekend, looking to build on the four points collected in the last two matches.

And defender Younger believes the squad have shown their stomach for the fight ahead in recent weeks.

On the significance of the comeback at Wimbledon:

“Going into that we knew it was a real six-pointer. At 2-0 down, we knew we had to find a way somehow.

“We showed good character to make sure we got something out of the game and I think in the end we were unlucky not to win it maybe.

“If you have the character, it’s half the battle.

“We’ve come on as a group in these last few games and the character really showed in the result at Wimbledon.

“Now we’ve had a few games together, we’ve got more of a squad now and it’s been about building the trust and belief.

“Relationships are getting better with players having more game time together.

“I think it’s all combined into one and everyone just wants to get the three points.”

On Tommy Rowe’s influence on the squad:

“I can speak highly enough of him as a leader, as a player and as a person.

“I think he leads by example both on and off the pitch. Saturday was a good example of that.

“When I came in he was one of the first to come and greet me.

“I’ve spoken to him a lot - even about things off the pitch.

“He has the leadership on the field and he’s a great guy that people can’t speak highly enough of.”

On settling in to life with Rovers:

“It’s been brilliant and really full-on.

“I think we’ve had ten games in that short period of time and I’ve actually missed not having a midweek game this week.

“I’m loving it and I’ve enjoyed the challenge. I think we’ve done all right form-wise and hopefully we can carry that on into the last ten games.”
