DRFC Button - I want to show how good I am

On loan goalkeeper David Button is enjoying playing games at Doncaster Rovers and he is looking to show just how good he is during his stay.

The England under 20 international joined Rovers at the start of the month on loan from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur and he has started all three games since arriving at the Keepmoat, a reason why he joined the club.

Speaking in the Sheffield Star, Button said, "I`m enjoying it at Doncaster because I`m playing games, which is why I came here.

"The two Championship games I`ve played against Barnsley and Cardiff have both being positive experiences and we`ve kept clean sheets in both.


Importantly he has kept two clean sheets in Rovers two championship games, helping Rovers claim four points from a possible six

Button is hoping to prove himself at this level after having nine previous loan spells away from White Hart Lane in the lower leagues of the Football League as well as a couple of spells in non-league football. "It`s a great league and there are a lot of good teams so it is always going to be hard.

"But I think I`m good enough to deal with it and hopefully now that I`m playing at a level which is going to challenge me I can start showing how good I am,"
continued Button.

Button will be hoping to make it three clean sheets in the championship in succession, when they travel to fellow strugglers Bristol City on Saturday, something they haven`t done since February 2010.

Rovers are four points behind Bristol City in twentieth place in the championship and a win would be a huge step in their bid to avoid relegation.

Whilst Rovers home form in recent times has been good, they are still struggling on their travels having lost their last five in a row.

Button is being favoured in the Rovers goal ahead of Gary Woods, with both Neil Sullivan and Carl Ikeme on the sidelines with broken thumbs.
