'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Junior ready to step up to the plate

Junior Hoilett is aiming to get in the groove and hit the Rovers first team sooner rather than later.

Whilst enjoying working under Allardyce, Junior knows that the way forward and to progress into the first team on a regular basis is to excel in games like the Carling Cup tie at Nottingham Forest tonight.

He has also taken some time to explain how Allardyce helps his players out.

Junior, speaking to the clubs official website said - 'The manager believes in the players, gives us confidence and wants to improve us'.

'He brings me in and shows me video clips of what I've been doing well and what I need to improve on.

'Hopefully this season I will get as many games as possible. I just want to keep improving and developing as a player.

'The staff and players have given me confidence and I've been working hard to get more goals.

'My goal is to play from the start. When you come on as a substitute you have to work harder and just do your best.

'But if I can get games in the Carling Cup, learn, get more experience I can impress the manager and try to get a start in the Premier League.'

Hoilett, who was one of the few bright sparks in the second half against Everton, also believe that the best way to get over Sunday is to do the job tonight against Forest in the cup.

'Everyone has their heads down after the Everton defeat but we have to get ready for the Forest game and bounce back,' he continued.

'It was a shocking performance. The coaching staff have made us watch the video and pointed out our mistakes.

'I expect a tough game. They will be ready for us so we have to keep focused and give it 100%.

'Away from home we have to go and get the basics right and work hard as a unit.'

Everything I have seen from Junior this season I have liked the look of. Giving him chances to show what he can do is only going to benefit us - give him a full game tonight for starters!

It's nice to finally have someone with pace, something which has been missing for a while!

We need players like Emo and Junior with pace because it does give you that extra leg up in games when you need some inspiration. Anyone else we have that has got pace?!?! God I am struggling!

Is Di Santo fit? I'd like to see Hoillet, Benni, Di Santo and Emo get a run out there. Let's get an aggressive 4-3-3 formation and put it to N. Forrest from whistle to whistle.

Junior looks like he's going to have a big future in the game, thankfully this looks like being here for the foreseeable future.
