Tom Anderson has been described as a tremendous servant to Rovers by manager Grant McCann as he prepares to make his 200th appearance for the club.
The centre half is set to reach the milestone in the clash with Morecambe at the Eco-Power Stadium and McCann paid tribute to the 30-year-old’s contribution to the club.
“He’s a top professional is Tom,” he said. “When I first came to the football club, the first time I was here, you could just see with the way he trains and how he goes about his business that he’s a proper leader
“He’s had his fair share of knock backs and injuries along the way but we feel he’s in a good place and he’s looking stronger all the time.
“He’s been a tremendous servant to the club and I know Tom would love a promotion. He’s not had one since he’s been here.
“I know it burns deep in him, that desire to be successful and have a successful season at this club.
“I’m sure that will happen. If it’s not this year, next year for him.
“He typifies everything you want when you’re coaching and trying to put plans in place. He can take criticism and he takes it in the right way.
“He can also rally the troops around him.
“He’s a loveable character, he’s a top player who the boys really respect, he’s very coachable and he’s a modern day leader. It’s great to work with him.”
