Fulham loanee Wayne Brown eyes Bristol Rovers return

Bristol Rovers on-loan midfielder Wayne Brown is looking to force his way into the team after returning from injury.

The 21-year-old, who recently had his loan from Fulham extended by a month, injured his ankle against Walsall and has missed the last five matches.

"It's hard to change a winning team," Brown told BBC Radio Bristol.

"I've had a good eight sessions on my ankle and I've had no problems so far. I'll be working hard this week and we'll have to see what happens."

He continued: "I haven't been injured for almost two years, but it's something all players have to deal with and come back hungrier than before."

Rovers are nine points outside the play-off zone, but Brown says the players haven't given up hope of a top six finish.

"It's definitely achievable, there's a few games to go and if you put a run of games together and perform the way the lads have been performing in the last few weeks it's definitely a possibility," he added.
