Scott Golbourne Pre Bristol Rovers

22 November 2019

Scott Golbourne looks ahead to Town's Sky Bet League One clash with Bristol Rovers.

Scott picked up a serious injury in the final moments of the 2018/19 season which saw him out for the majority of the Summer. Since then, Scott has fought his way back into the starting 11 and put in some impressive performances. Scott mentioned that he's starting to feel back to his best.

"I'm starting to feel near to where I want to be in terms of fitness and match sharpness. I knew it would take a good five or six games to really find my rhythm. 

"It's just a case of the repetition, there are things where you start to notice you've not played as you notice a change in differences and timing, things like that, your ability doesn't really change, even the coaching staff now, they can still play it's just a case of distances, timing and awareness on the pitch, those are the things I personally find take a little bit longer to come back when I've been out for a while but I'm starting to feel back to full capacity again."

Scott spoke about how the dynamic of the dressing works under Sam. 

"We've got Myself, Dave Edwards and a few other experienced lads in the dressing which definitely helps, we sort of mirror what the gaffer is trying to do from a football aspect, we try and understand the messages that are being delivered and then we try and implement that as well. The Gaffer has been great really because he said look I want you guys to lead the dressing room, he wants it to have it's own philosophy rather than just him just kind of wielding the axe. He asked us over the summer what do you guys want as a dressing room, I think that's been really good and I think it's worked really well so far as it all comes from within." 

Bristol-born Scott who has also played for his boyhood club Bristol City is looking to make sure he gets the best of Bristol Rovers tomorrow. 

"It means a lot to me to beat Bristol Rovers, I always enjoy playing against them, obviously being from the red side of the city. There's a bit of pressure as well, a few family members won't be happy if we don't take 3 points as it's a good opportunity to beat Bristol Rovers so I'm very much looking forward to it."
