Deadline day signing Max Woltman said the prospect of securing promotion this season was a major driving force behind his move to Rovers.
The 19-year-old forward arrived at the Eco-Power Stadium on a season-long loan from Liverpool and is determined to make his first considerable steps into senior football count.
“I’ve been working hard at Liverpool, getting my head down, trying to score goals and reaching my targets,” he said. “It’s landed me this move to a big club with big aspirations and I’m really looking forward to it.
“It’s one thing doing it in youth football but taking it to the next level in men’s football is the much bigger picture and that’s where I want to be.
“I want to be setting the biggest targets possible so I had no doubts in my mind that this is what I want to do.
“Talking to my family, talking to my agent and doing a bit of research on the club, I know they’re a good footballing side and they’ve got big aspirations to be going for promotion.
“It’s just what I want and I want to see if I can help the club win promotion.”
Woltman made his senior football debut for Liverpool as a late substitute in a Champions League clash at AC Milan last season and was handed a start in the FA Cup against Shrewsbury Town.
He is now hopeful of following in the footsteps of fellow Liverpool youngsters who have thrived during loan spells.
“They’ve all said they enjoyed every single minute of it,” he said.
“They’ve said don’t expect it to be all easy and I’m going to have hard things coming my way.
“I’m looking forward to it because that makes you the player you want to be.
“I can’t wait to see what the next few months have in store for me.
“It’s a massive step and it’s one that footballers have to do all the time.
“I think you just have to adjust, knuckle down and do what you love to do best.”
