Olowu ready to hit ground running after Rovers return

23 September 2022

Joseph Olowu is feeling fit and ready to go after making his return for Rovers in the midweek win over Lincoln City.

Olowu played 70 minutes in the Papa John’s Trophy tie following injury and is hopeful of being involved in Saturday’s clash with Crawley Town in Sky Bet League Two.

Olowu on his injury and return to action:

“It wasn’t ideal, the injury, but it was nice to be back among the boys, put in a good performance and get the result to back it up as well.

“I’m feeling good. I’m feeling very, very good.

“There were a few different tackles and challenges in the game that I came through and that gives me confidence that my body is feeling good.

“You’ve got to test yourself and if you hold back, that’s when you’re likely to get injured. I went full blooded and got the best out of it.

“Injuries are part and parcel of the game. You try to look after your body as best you can and have a bit of faith that you can come through the season unscathed.

“It was frustrating for me in the beginning but I just looked forward to getting myself back onto the pitch fit and strong again.”

On his partnership with Ro-Shaun Williams:

“It’s a matter of whoever is at the back, if you get a nice partnership going it’s only going to stand the team in good stead.

“If that’s what comes from it, and it brings us great success this season, we look forward to it.

“I’m of the belief that if you’re willing to step up to the plate and put yourself forward then by all means just keep doing what you’re doing.”

On watching the recent run from the sidelines:

“I’ve just tried to come in and get my bubbly bounce energy around the place and keep everyone looking forward to the next game.

“We are going to get out of it and go on a run of fantastic performances and fantastic results.

“It’s all about finding the positives in the moment and setting the tone from there.

“It’s something that comes naturally to me. I’ve always got to try to have a smile on my face. I’m a very positive thinker and if I can bring my personality, that energy can emit onto everyone else.”

On looking to get back on track against Crawley:

“It’s the next game we’ve got and it’s up to us to knuckle down, get the right training in, make sure we’re all on the same page as we have been and go onto Saturday to produce a performance that is backed with a good result.”
