Waters: We'll take the game to Stockport

26 January 2024

Billy Waters insists Rovers will have no hesitation in taking the game to table-topping Stockport County this weekend.

Rovers are seeking to build on recent positive performances as they host the Sky Bet League Two leaders and Waters believes doing so against Stockport will help to provide real momentum.

“It’d be lovely to do it against Stockport, especially with how well they’re doing in the league this season,” the 29-year-old said. “We all know what Stockport can do.

“I think we should be going into the game confident and approaching the game thinking we can get something out of it.

“When you’re playing top of the league, you can sometimes treat it as a free hit. With the way that the boys have been playing and how we’ve been training, I think we look good.

“Anyone can beat anyone in this league on any given day so I think we should approach this game with full confidence and take the game to them.”

Waters admits he does not feel the ability of the Rovers squad correlates to the current league position and feels there should be plenty of confidence in climbing the table over the final few months of the campaign.

“Since coming in and seeing the quality that is within the team, there’s no shame in saying that we should be higher in the table,” he said.

“What has amazed me is that it’s just a honest and good group of lads that don’t deserve to be where we are in the table.

“I think the Newport game, my first game, was evident of that. We should have got something out of the game and we ended up losing 1-0.

“I don’t know whether it’s hard luck sometimes but we played well against Newport and the lads did well against Wigan on the Tuesday.

“It’s just about getting that momentum and seeing where it can take us.”
