Rovers forward Marcus Antonsson admits he's still getting used to an English festive period ahead of his second Christmas in the country.

The Swede confesses he will be on his own on Christmas Day, but also enjoys the tradition of constant football over the next week or so.

"I'm still adapting to the way things work over in England with the amount of games over the festive period," Marcus said.

"I'll be alone over Christmas but we also celebrate on the 24th December in Sweden as well.

"There's nothing I can do about it. The season has stopped in Sweden. They have a holiday over Christmas and New Year, but over here there is constant football, which is part of the tradition.

"With the games and with training it's difficult to get back home to see family and friends, but it's something I've got used to now."

Marcus has been in fine form in recent weeks and will hope to continue that, with Rovers hosting Rochdale and Scunthorpe before heading to Rotherham on New Year's Day.

"It's my second Christmas in England now and although it's different at the same time I'm playing football, doing something I love," he added.

"I think it'll probably be turkey for one on Christmas Day!"
