Glatzel: We've shown great character today

12 January 2022

Goalscorer Paul Glatzel believes Rovers showed great character on Tuesday evening as they fought back to earn a hard-fought point on the road at Salford.

Liverpool loanee Glatzel started his interview by praising the character of the squad after a challenging evening in Lancashire.

"I've been out for a few weeks, but I've just been looking to get back in. I was delighted to get on and I was delighted to score today, but we just need to carry on and take the form with us and take as many points as we can.

"We've shown great character today and we dug in and got a point so it's good and we move on."

The 20-year-old also discussed the competition within the squad, citing the battle for places as a key factor in Rovers rapid rise up the league table.

"You need competition in the squad and you need different players to come on and affect the game, sometimes you need that off the bench.

"It's good to have that competition and it's good to see it in training. The levels are high and everyone's pushing on and trying to get into the team and that's what you need really."

The cameo appearance off the bench was only Glatzel's second since he returned from a spell on the sidelines with a hamstring injury. He went into detail on the disappointment of being injured and the challenges of getting back into the starting eleven, which has been made all the more testing due to Rovers excellent run of form.

"It was disappointing to be out with my injury, but these things happen in football. It was good to see the boys kick on and pick up as many points as they could, it was brilliant to see them go on that run."

"Obviously then when you come back you're not going to go back in the team as normal because the boys are performing well. So, you have to be patient and just try and help the team where you can and if I come off the bench then I need to make an impact."
