Wigan match was my turning point

Ben Marshall has happy memories from the last encounter between Rovers and Wigan.

The midfielder grabbed two goals as Rovers defeated the Latics 3-1 at Ewood Park back in September.

Marshall looks back fondly on the game, admitting it was the match that kick-started his season after he missed the second half of last year through injury.

"It was kind of a turning point for me because it was my first couple of goals this season and it felt like a bit of a spark for me," Marshall told Rovers Player.

"At the start of the season I just wanted to get back playing and to try and get back to full fitness and build it up.

"After the disappointment of missing the second half of last season it was difficult so I needed something to give me the confidence and it all returned when I managed to score the goals.

"Since then I've managed to score a few important goals, stay in the team and play a few positions so it is nice for me."

Marshall has proved his versatility to the team by playing in numerous positions so far this season, but having played in defence, midfield and attack, the 23-year-old is just happy to be playing.

"I enjoy playing football, so wherever I play, I enjoy," added Marshall.

"If I go right-back I enjoy going forward and actually enjoy people running at me, it is a challenge. Being a winger I can work out what the other winger is going to do so it is nice.

"It is also a challenge if I play further forward to score goals and create chances."
