Rovers defender Josh Dacres-Cogley expressed his frustration at missing the boxing day clash against Barrow, with the 25-year-old set to return to the fold having suffered from Covid-19 over the Christmas period.
Dacres-Cogley is in contention to return to the starting eleven for Saturday's clash with Scunthorpe United and talked about the importance of protecting an outbreak happening within the squad.
"I've had it recently, over the Christmas period. Obviously, I didn't enjoy being off and missing the boxing day game and being with the lads.
"But, you've got to try and stay professional and keep everyone safe and prevent it from spreading around the squad because obviously you want to keep playing your games so you don't have a massive buildup.
"But I think we've done it fairly well considering. You've just got to stay positive and stay professional, keep on training and be vigilant at home and stuff like that, not going out and being at risk of catching it.
Dacres-Cogley also went into detail on the fine form Rovers have been in, with recent results propelling the side to fourth in the League Standings. The full-back revealed his belief that a purple patch was always on the horizon and praised the credentials within the group.
"I think it was always there on the horizon, it was just a few things we needed to tweak.
"But, we've just showed that we're really hard to beat, I stand with the whole team we still think that we should score a lot more goals. But, we're one of those teams that are really hard to beat. We don't give up easily, we'll carry on going until 95, 96 minutes, so we always think we've got a chance of getting something or winning the game.
"So, I think that's why the team has been in good stead so far. Obviously, we hope to continue it and hopefully, we get confidence from that and carry on going."
