Happy to help in any way I can

Sam Gallagher says he'll continue to do what's asked of him in any position he plays

30 August 2019

Sam Gallagher says he'll do everything he can for Rovers no matter what position he plays.

The 23-year-old forward came off the bench in midweek against Sheffield United to nod home his first goal since rejoining Rovers on a permanent deal back in the summer from Southampton.

This season has seen the towering frontman play his part both on the wings and up front, and Gallagher says he's happy to play anywhere for the benefit of the team.

“It was a great feeling to get back on the scoresheet, but despite an impressive performance it was a shame we didn’t get more than the result showed," the big man told iFollow Rovers when reflecting on Tuesday's Carabao Cup clash.

“I’d like to think it’s reward for the hard work I’ve put in, but it’s just a case of continuing to put the work in on the training ground to see the reward on the pitch.

“It’s nice to get that first goal out of the way. Doing anything good produces great feelings, so the more goals I score the better I’ll feel.

“You have ideas of what you want to achieve, but I like to keep my targets to myself. Sometimes you may have to set a target to whatever helps the team and whatever job you do for the team.

“Game by game, by the opponent you face, we may go with a different way. We have options all over the team, so I’m just happy to adapt the way I play to the way the boss wants us to play.

“There’s so much competition, there’s a fight to get in the team. Having the ability to play in a few positions will hopefully help me play more games," he added.

“I knew before from playing under the gaffer a few years ago that I’d maybe have to adapt my play, but I’m cherishing the opportunity.

“As long as the team’s doing well and I’m doing what I can on the pitch, that’s all that matters to me. If I can develop and improve at the same time then that’s great.

“I feel there’s more to come both individually and as a team. We have so much talent, we can really do well this season."
