I really can't take any negatives from my first six months here

Rovers striker Dominic Samuel admits he's loving life at the club after signing in the summer from Championship outfit Reading.

Ahead of the clash with another Championship side in Hull City, Dom looks back on his stay at Rovers and confesses that it's gone almost perfectly for him since the move to East Lancashire.

"It's going well. I couldn't have asked for a better start. I really can't take any negatives from my first six months here at Rovers," the 23-year-old said.

"It's a team sport. It's frustrating at times and it's important to keep your head and back your team-mates when things perhaps aren't going your way.

"There's a lot of confidence in the squad, particularly considering we haven't lost for so long. 

"With the virus that has been going around the squad lately, I think it shows the quality we have in the changing room to still not lose despite having a few players - myself included - under the weather with illness.

"The group is getting even tighter and we're still learning to play with each other all the time. Getting a point on the board at times is still another one to add to the tally. 

"Defensively we're getting better and stronger as a unit, too. We've been working on our shape and I think it's showing in games. We're improving at the season goes on."
