It would be a great honour

23 February 2017

Craig Conway will reach a personal milestone for Rovers if he starts against Burton Albion on Friday night.

For if the Scot is named in Tony Mowbray's first team line-up it will be his 100th league start for the club.

But whilst he'd be delighted to make it a century of Rovers starts, Conway knows that it is more important that they collect three points against the Brewers.

"I wasn't aware of that stat until recently, so hopefully I can start on Friday," Conway told Rovers PlayerHD.

"To make 100 starts would be a great honour, it is just over three years that I've been here and I've enjoyed every minute of it.

"But the most important thing is on the pitch and we want to go out on Friday and get the three points, that is what we have to do.

"There was a lot of positives in the performance to come out of the game at the weekend, so that is what we are hoping to take into the game against Burton.

"It will be a really tough game but at the end of the day it is serious business and the three points is the most important thing."
