Pushing each other all the way

26 April 2014

Luke Varney is happy to watch on from the sidelines if the strikers continue their fine goalscoring form for the remainder of the campaign.

The on-loan forward hasn't featured for Rovers as much as he'd have liked to since his move from Leeds United at the beginning of February, but is delighted to see Jordan and Rudy find the back of the net on a regular basis.

Varney has made a dozen appearances, with just three being from the start, but he'll take that as long as the team are winning.

"I spoke to the gaffer about it and I'll back Rudy up every step of the way and I know 100% that he'd do the same for me,"  said Varney.

"There is that sort of feeling around the squad and that is healthy. I was as happy as anyone to see Rudy get those goals and seeing him again this morning smashing them in his confidence is flying and it can only help us.

"We are delighted and we are pushing each other all the way."

For Varney it will be a return to one of his former clubs this Saturday after a big money move from Crewe saw him join Charlton back in 2007. A place he'll always have fond memories of.

"It was a big move for me at the time to go down to London, I thought it was the right thing to do and I really enjoyed my time down there.

"I've got nothing but good things to say about the place. Every time I go back it is good to see old friends but it would be good to stick one on them on Saturday."

Back to his current club, Varney sees no reason why Rovers can't continue their fine end of season form for the final two matches.

"I'm enjoying being part of a team, it has been brilliant, to be involved in something where we are keeping the season alive is fantastic," added the 31-year-old.

"With about eight games to go the gaffer set us the challenge to go unbeaten and that is the important thing now, we want to do that.

"We are all focused on putting these two games into good results. The drive and the mentality has been brilliant.

"We've just got to keep putting the performances in and pushing each other and keeping it alive for that last game of the season."
