Great to be back out there

2 December 2014

Chris Brown is hoping to make the most of the busy Christmas period by forcing his way into the Rovers first team.

The 29-year-old forward made his long-awaited debut for the club at the weekend, coming on as a second half substitute in Rovers' dramatic 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough.

A summer signing from Doncaster Rovers, Brown had been sidelined with a persistant knee problem, but was delighted to finally make his debut for the club in what turned out to be an eventful game.

"It has been a frustrating time but what a game to come back for!" said the striker. "It was great to be a part of it.

"Everyone is delighted, we soaked up a lot of pressure and when you go 1-0 down with ten minutes left you are thinking it is going to be one of those days. But it was a great feeling at the end when Rudy stuck it in.

"It was great to be back and great to part of. It was brilliant, we were jumping all over the place."

Brown followed up his ten minute cameo at the Riverside by getting a further 75 minutes under his belt for the development squad on Monday night. Eager to make up for lost time, he now hopes to get more matches over the festive period.

"It is good with the Christmas period coming up and I want to be part of it," added Brown.

"I've been desperate to get back and it is just a case now of getting my sharpness in training and getting my touch back.

"I enjoyed it, I felt pretty sharp out there so I was pleased."

Brown could make his home debut this Saturday when Rovers take on Sheffield Wednesday.

Tickets for the match are on open sale with prices from £21 Adults, from £13 for Seniors and Students and from just £8 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
