Sunday’s fixture with Nuneaton Town was Lee Brown’s first since the game against Gateshead at the Memorial Stadium on the 19th of December and the full back is now facing a blank weekend but Lee says that the squad as a whole needs the break.
“It’s frustrating for me that we don’t have a game this weekend but the rest of the boys need their rest.
“With them having played four or five games over a short period of time their legs are tired and hopefully I can keep my fitness going until we play Woking.
Brown missed a majority of Rovers festive period with a thigh strain but told us that he came through Sunday’s game without any further issues.
“I trained today and it’s all been fine and long may that continue.
Since Lee joined Rovers in the summer of 2011 he has had his fair share of struggles with the club but tells us that it is great to be part of a winning team.
“It has been a good first half of the season, but that is all it is. We have to make sure that we carry on with our momentum and get the fans behind us again so we can go again against Woking.
“Yes it is nice to be in a team that is winning because I think that helps my personal game because when we are on top of teams I can get forward a bit more which is good.
One of the strengths of the Bristol Rovers side this season is the fact that the whole squad has been able to score goals, however Brown hasn’t so far yet this season, which is something his team mates aren’t keen to let him forget.
“The boys have told me many a time that I haven’t scored yet but I’m unbelievable at scoring goals in training but haven’t got one in a game yet.
“It is just one of those things, if we have someone else scoring goals then that’s all that matters really, it’s not all about me.
“If someone else is scoring and we are winning games then I couldn’t really care if I’m not scoring.
“One week if I score and we win then brilliant but if it is someone else and we’re winning then that’s the main thing.
