You haven't seen the best of me yet, says Marcus

It's not been a bad November for Rovers forward Marcus Antonsson, but with five goals, an assist and even a PFA Player of the Month award, the Leeds loanee still feels he can improve.

Speaking on Thursday afternoon after picking up his prize, the Swede admitted it was social media that told him he was in with a chance of earning the honour.

"I think only found out I was nominated via Twitter and then a few of the lads mentioned I'd won the award today," the 26-year-old said with a smile.

"I still think the best is to come from me. I can always take performances forward, even after five goals and one assist in November. I'm playing a new role but the more I play there the more comfortable I feel.

"I am getting more and more settled out wide and full of confidence. The goals are the important thing from a personal point of view. They boost my confidence and when I score I am better on the pitch and make improved decisions."

The team comes first though and the Rovers number 20 is just pleased to be playing a part in the team's surge up the League One table.

"When you win games as a team it's a really nice month to win the award, particularly because a few of the lads could have been nominated. When I help the team by scoring goals and we win then I am very happy.

"I think we've shown offensively that we are capable of scoring a lot of goals. If we can keep doing that with our excellent back four then we will keep improving."
