Broadbent: Honest conversations have been key to upturn

3 September 2023

George Broadbent believes some honest conversations among the Rovers squad have helped spark the upturn in performances over the last week.

Though the hunt for the first league win of the season continues, Rovers have improved considerably in the games against MK Dons and Swindon Town, as well as the impressive showing against Everton in the Carabao Cup.

“We've changed formation and that's probably helped a bit more,” Broadbent said. “We’ve nailed down some basics of what we need to do as a team and then it's about everyone being on the right page.

“Everyone knowing what each other are all about and what they’re going to do with the ball.

“We’ve had a bit of honesty about ourselves in meetings. It’s things we’ve discussed and they’re helping us to play better.

“There’s a lot of new players but it’s a lot of the basics like being more aggressive which comes from us any way.

“The manager has told us that. The staff have implemented it in training. We’ve got to grips with it and we’re getting better.

“Personally, I’m just trying to do what the gaffer has asked of me and over the last couple of games I think it’s worked well.”
