Skipper can't wait for his first Friday night game of the season after missing out against Scunthorpe
John White was full of praise for Blues’ supporters and is looking forward to experiencing his first Friday atmosphere of the season against Bristol Rovers.
White missed Blues’ first Friday game of the season against Scunthorpe United because of a thigh injury, but was back in the starting line-up for the trip to Bury last weekend.
The skipper is now looking forward to Friday’s game against Rovers, and going up against his former boss, John Ward.
He said: “It will be my first Friday night home game of the season because I missed the game against Scunthorpe which was a shame.
“The atmosphere was great that night so I’m really looking forward to the game.
“The fans have been fantastic so far this season. Their support at Gigg Lane last weekend was brilliant and hopefully we can put in a good performance for them this Friday.
“There were definitely mixed emotions after Saturday. We done enough to win the game but it was frustrating they managed to pull it back so late on in the game.
“But we stopped the rot of losing games and we’ve got to use that as a platform to build on now for Friday night against Bristol Rovers.
“I played under John Ward at Colchester United for a while of course. He’s a good manager who is very organised and disciplined in his approach to the game.
“I also played with John-Joe O’Toole and we all know what to expect of him. He’s a good passer of the ball. It’s going to be a tough game but the lads are still full of confidence.
“We’ve played well in the majority of games this season, the Morecambe game is probably the only exception.
“Things sometimes don’t go your way and while we probably deserve more points on the board it’s not happened, hopefully that will change on Friday.”
