Rovers loanee Charlie Colkett speaks to GasPlayer HD about Saturday's victory over Bury and looks ahead to the busy festive period, starting with Rovers' trip to Shrewsbury Town this weekend.

After being recalled to the starting eleven for Saturday's fixture at the Mem, the midfielder hopes that Saturday's win can spark a good run of form for the side as they head into the New Year.

"We have been through a little bit of a rough spell, but it's about bouncing back in a positive way and that is what we managed to do on Saturday," said the midfielder.

'I just want to play as many games to get good game time. I was on a good role earlier in the season and now I just want to kick-on."

"It was disappointing that we went behind on Saturday, in what was their first shot on target, but we created a lot of chances on the day and it was still nice to score the four goals and get back to winning ways."

After making seven starts and a further seven appearances from the bench so far this season, the creative midfielder insisted that he is enjoying his loan spell at the Club.

"I have really been enjoying my time here."

"I had a little bit of a difficult spell where game time wasn't as high as it was earlier in the season, but that is all part of the experience of going out on loan and it has made me stronger and I'm learning from that."

"I felt that I played well on Saturday, so hopefully now I can push on."

"Bristol is a great area and I'm enjoying my time here."

The midfielder and his teammates visited the Young Pirates Christmas Party last weekend, with both Charlie and Hiram Boateng taking in spells serving at the Club Shop.

The youngster believes that engaging with the local community is an integral part of being a footballer and has enjoyed the support that the Rovers fans have given the team so far this campaign. 

"The fans here are great. I have never experienced support from fans quite like it!"

"Even during the difficult games, the fans stick by the team and get behind the players, which I feel is very important."

"Hiram and myself enjoyed the experience of serving in the club shop last week, I think that we were quite good on the tills!"

"It is important to give something back. In my area where I come from in London, I'm always trying to give back to them because that's where I grew up and started to play football."
