Graham: We need to stick together

“We need to keep believing, keep trying hard, keep buying into what the gaffer wants, and I’m sure we’re in for a good season"

Rovers frontman Danny Graham has urged everyone to stick together ahead of a busy run of fixtures, which begins this weekend at home to Huddersfield Town.

The last three outings prior to the international break didn't go Rovers' way, with one point picked up against Luton Town, Nottingham Forest and Queens Park Rangers.

But in football there's always a challenge not too far away, and after a frustrating two weeks, Graham is eager for the team to get back on the saddle this weekend.

“We have produced performances this season and I think we’ve been quite unlucky in a few games," he reflected to iFollow Rovers.

“We need to keep believing, keep trying hard, keep buying into what the gaffer wants, and I’m sure we’re in for a good season.

“We look back at the block of games and feel that we should have done better in the last three games.

“The next batch of games, with Huddersfield, Birmingham, Preston, Sheffield Wednesday, it’s a tougher set of fixtures.

“But knowing us we’ll probably get more points out of them. Let’s stick together, let’s keep working hard and make sure we’re heading in the right direction.

“We need to go on an unbeaten run to push ourselves back up into the mix, and it’s something we did last season.

“I believe we have a stronger squad this season, so why can’t we do it again?”

The 34-year-old may have picked up the Player of the Season award for 2018-19, but it's been a tougher start to this term for the striker, who has found himself in and out of the team.

He's content with sitting on the bench, but only when the team is winning, he added.

“As hard as it is for me to bite my tongue at times, I’ll keep working hard for the group and I’ll never give up.

“I want to get back out there and play, but if the team I winning then I’ll happily sit on the bench. If I feel I can make an impact in games then I will say it to the gaffer.

“First and foremost it’s important that the team comes first.”
