Paul Caddis will take on his former club when Rovers travel to Bury on Saturday.

The full-back spent a short spell with the Shakers at the start of the calendar year, and will hope to feature against them this weekend.

Speaking to iFollow Rovers ahead of the game, Caddis remembers his time at Gigg Lane fondly and is looking forward to heading back as an opposition player. 

“I was only at Bury for two-and-a-half months, just to go and play some games and get playing again, to be honest," he said.

“I knew the manager really well and, unfortunately, he lost his job there, but I enjoyed my time there. I’ve enjoyed it at Rovers too.

"I’ve managed to get in and play a lot of games here. I understand my position and, between myself and Ryan Nyambe, we’ll play a lot of games.

"We’ve got a couple of games in hand and fancy ourselves in any game, home and away. We just have to deliver.

“I think it’s always good to go about your business quietly, win games and let other teams worry about you."

Asked about the competition provided by Nyambe, Caddis believes it can only be viewed as a positive thing. 

“I try to help Ryan and pass as much as I can on to him. A lot of people might think we’re there to compete but we have the same goal," Paul added.

“I’m still only 29, but the older I get, the more I understand that the manager will want to play me for some games and Ryan for others.

“I’ve just got to be ready for when I’m needed to play, and the same goes for Ryan.

“He’s a very good full-back and a very good professional. I’ve tried to help him be a bit more positive going forward and I’ve learned some things from him defensively.

“We learn from each other – he’s a really good lad."
