Relishing the chance

4 March 2016

Tony Watt is eager to experience the atmosphere of an East Lancashire derby.

Despite being only 22, the on-loan forward is no stranger to a big encounter between local rivals.

His second ever appearance in a Celtic shirt came against Rangers, whilst he's also played for Standard Liege against Anderlecht, Lierse against Mechelen and for Charlton against Millwall, so he can't wait for tomorrow's lunchtime clash with Burnley.

"I'm excited, Burnley are a good club but I think we have got what it takes," Watt told Rovers PlayerHD.

"I've not been involved in this derby before but I've played in a few other ones so hopefully I can be involved and play and obviously I'm relishing the chance.

"I've been lucky to play in a few, they are amazing, the atmosphere is always unbelievable, so I can't wait for Saturday.

"The place will be rocking and these are the games that you are here for. When the atmosphere is high then it gives you a lift.

"We don't need a lift as we've been on a good run but hopefully we can keep it going."

Not fortunate to get a ticket the match? Then why not do the next best thing and watch the big match in Blues Bar!

Blues will be open from 9.30am on Saturday serving teas, coffee, soft drinks and food, with alcohol being served from 10.00am.

Enjoy a bite to eat with breakfast butties, burgers, chilli and chips all available.

An hour before kick-off until the first goal is scored or the final whistle blows it is £2.00 for a pint of Fosters or John Smiths, and £2.50 for a pint of Kronenbourg or Strongbow.

So come on down to Blues and enjoy the big match atmosphere!
