Doncaster Rovers: Industrious Brown still keen to hit the net

Chris Brown is more than happy to do the ‘less glamorous’ duties up front but admits he might have to be a bit more selfish in front of goal.

Words such as ‘workmanlike’ and ‘industrious’ are often used to described Doncaster’s towering frontman following non-stop performances which have clinched him several Man of the Match accolades.

And the former Sunderland trainee is keen to continue playing the way he does and mucking in when Rovers need him most.

But the hard-working hold-up player does still share the same ambition of any other striker - the need to bag as many goals as possible.

“I am desperate to score more goals,” admitted the 29-year-old who was delighted to net Doncaster’s opener in their 2-1 win over Watford on Tuesday night.

“Sometimes I think I need to be a bit more selfish, but I think that that is one of my strengths too.

“I enjoy doing it [the hold-up play] and I will keep chipping in with the goals, I am confident of doing that.”

The ex-Preston forward went on: “I am sure from now until the end of the season I will get more goals.”

Having battled back from injuries including hamstring and ankle problems this season during Doncaster’s unprecedented injury crisis, Brown is glad to be back to feeling match-fit and admits that has certainly had something to do with his good form.

“I enjoyed the pre-season, I played a part in all the games pre-season and I have just felt fit the majority of the time,” he said.

“I did my ankle and a hamstring strain which happened in games but the gaffer has shown a lot of faith and played me when I am fit.

“So, I’m enjoying it and hopefully I am going to end the season well.”
