Bristow raring to go for Easter weekend

6 April 2023

Ethan Bristow sat down to discuss this upcoming set of fixtures over the Easter weekend as Rovers firstly prepare to take on 4th place Carlisle United on the road this Friday.

“Every fixture in this league is demanding. You come across all types of teams and I think with the way we’ve trained this week, we can play against what we’re going to face this weekend.

“If you can stand up to the occasion, as a team, then you can overcome teams like we did against Stevenage and Leyton Orient but we have to do that against Carlisle who will be just as tough.

“We’ve got two tough games over the Easter weekend so we’re all ready and raring to go."

Before signing in the summer, the bulk of Ethan’s football was played at U23 level for Reading and the defender talked about what he has learned in his maiden season at Prenton Park and what he needs to do to progress.

“In my first season in this division, I’ve realised that anyone can beat anyone. There’s not a lot of difference between most of the teams in the league so on Friday we need to make sure we come out on top.

I’ve learned a lot so far this season having come in from academy football and it’s just about continuing to learn and have the right attitude.

“For me it’s about finding that consistency within my performances and pushing on from there. I have to maintain that mentality and that focus in games to be able to progress and provide for the team."

After a change in managerial staff a couple of weeks ago, Bristow believes that the squad are taking in the new information in their stride.

“I think myself and the boys have done well so far and we are eager to feed into the ideas that are being put forward. Everyone just wants to keep pushing and pushing. 

“It’s always going to be different because different managers have different ideas but we just have to adjust to what’s being asked of us which I feel we have done.

“I’ve learned a lot so far this season having come in from academy football and it’s just about continuing to learn and have the right attitude.

“For me it’s about finding that consistency within my performances and pushing on from there. I have to maintain that mentality and that focus in games to be able to progress and provide for the team."
