Good to finally get on the pitch

After finally making his long-awaited first team debut for the club, defender Wes Brown is eager for more action for Rovers.

It was a bittersweet afternoon for the former England international last Saturday, as he made his senior debut and got on the scoresheet, but Rovers finished on the losing side after going down 3-2 to Reading.

Brown was pleased to make his debut, and now hopes to get more game time and improve with every match.

"It was good to finally get on the pitch so hopefully I can do more now and with the games improve as well," Brown told Radio Rovers.

"No matter who the gaffer picks we just want to win. If I can help the lads do that then I'll be fine with that.

"I don't score many so it is always nice to score, but for me it is all about the end result and we've come off the pitch very disappointed.

"It has been difficult, we've played really well, we've created some great chances but we've not put them away and then we've slipped up at the back.

"We'll still stick together, there is a great bunch of lads. There are some good players here and we know how to play as a team, so we've just got to keep our heads high now and not drop them for the next game.

"We've played well and if we can put those opportunities away in the next few games then I'm sure we can start getting points."

Rovers are back in action on Boxing Day when they travel to Oakwell to take on Barnsley.
