It's been a long road from the Academy to the first team for Ryan Nyambe, but the full back says he always feels "privileged" to represent Rovers.

The defender appeared for the 100th time in blue-and-white in the midweek Carabao Cup clash against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, showing his usual pace and power in the Steel City.

It's been a rapid rise for Nyambe, who's featured regularly since making his debut against a Shrewsbury Town team that included current Rover Jayson Leutwiler in their side back in August 2015.

And looking back at the last four years, Nyambe's proud of what he's achieved and is targeting more milestones to come his way.

“I feel privileged to have played 100 times for this football club and really happy," the defender beamed when reflecting to iFollow Rovers.

“I’ve come a long way since I’ve been here, coming right the way through the Academy to reach the milestone.

“I never thought I’d reach it, but I have and here I am today.

“It’s gone really quick over the years. It goes so fast you don’t really think about it too much. You just play game by game, reach 50 appearances and now 100.

“I think I’ve changed a lot both as a person and as a player since making my debut four years ago. I’m more confident now and that’s down to my team-mates and my coaches, right through the levels.

“The biggest highlight for me so far has definitely been promotion from League One to get us back into the Championship," he added when picking out his most memorable moment.

“Other than that, playing every game and getting minutes in, it’s a real privilege playing for this fantastic club.

“You want to play as many games as you can in your career and I’m no different. I’m hopeful of reaching a minimum of 500 games before I retire.”
