I'm desperate to reward the faith

“I know my performances haven't been the best this season, so hopefully I can make it a better end to the campaign"

2 March 2019

Ben Brereton says he's keen to reward the belief shown in him by manager Tony Mowbray - by banging in the goals.

The teenager has had a frustrating start to life as a Rover since arriving from Nottingham Forest in the summer.

He's been in and out of the team, and is yet to score in a first team outing, although a brace for the Development Squad in midweek was the perfect confidence boost, by Brereton's own admission.

And whilst the striker confessed it was nice to be back in amongst the goals, he's hopeful of finding the net for the first team sooner rather than later.

“I need to get back out on the pitch and do what I know I do – score goals," the forward told iFollow Rovers in honest fashion.

“The gaffer continues to tell me what I need to do better. Sometimes he praises me and sometimes he's critical.

“Every player needs that to keep them going. You never want to be too comfortable.

“He's brought me in and I know he believes in me. I want to reward him with goals," he added.

“I know my performances haven't been the best this season, so hopefully I can make it a better end to the campaign."
