Cargill looking forward to home comforts

17 November 2017

Baily Cargill says he is looking forward to returning to Highbury on Saturday as Fleetwood Town host Doncaster Rovers.

Town have played away against Blackburn Rovers and MK Dons in the league, as well as Chorley in the Emirates FA Cup and Carlisle in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Progress has been made in both cup competitions, with Town sitting ninth ahead of the meeting with Rovers.

“It feels like it’s been a while since we’ve played at home,” said Cargill.

“We’ve had a tough few games, but I think the performances have been pretty good. We were disappointed to not get a result against MK Dons.

“It’s been nice to have a normal week again, we’ve had a lot of games recently. It’s been Saturday, Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, so we’ve prepared well for this one and are raring to go.”

Darren Ferguson’s Rovers side won promotion from League Two last season, and have picked up some impressive results this season against the likes of Blackburn Rovers and Portsmouth.

“There’s never an easy game in this league and I think Doncaster have showed that,” stated Cargill.

“Even though they’re a mid-table team, they can put up a fight with the upper-table sides.

“With Doncaster playing five at the back as well, I think it will be a tight game with both sides looking for that extra quality in forward areas. We’ll be going in trying to win.”

Being three months into his loan from Premier League side Bournemouth, Cargill acknowledges it’s been different to what he is used to.

“Personally, I think I’ve had a bit of a tough start, picking up a few injuries here and there, but I’m starting to feel fresh now.

“I’ve settled really nice in here and the lads have welcomed me in such a great way. I was in and out the team a bit, but now I feel I’ve had a good run in the team so far.

“Obviously I know I’m not going to play every game but I got to try and play well to keep my spot.

“We’re in a good position now, with three important games we need to pick up as many points as we can in.”
