PAUL Caddis says the Rovers squad are all geared up to play their part in the busy Christmas period as Tony Mowbray’s men look to continue their climb up the League One table.

Mowbray is yet to name an unchanged team so far this season, and with injuries and suspensions starting to bite, Caddis is well aware the whole squad will be required.

The full-back is among those players working hard and waiting for their chance having not started a league game since October 17, with Ryan Nyambe cementing his place at right-back.

But after coming through 90 minutes in Sunday’s FA Cup tie with Crewe, the 29-year-old was happy to be back on the field and keen for more action to follow.

“I think that will be important,” Caddis said of Rovers’ strength in depth.

“The manager has openly said it’s all about the squad and he changes the team a lot so it keeps everyone on their toes and they know they could be needed every week.

“Christmas is a busy period, a lot of games in a short space of time.

“We will use the squad I’m sure, everyone will be fresh and eager to impress.”

Rovers travel to Peterborough United this weekend and will play five more league games before the end of the year as well as the replay at Crewe on December 12.

They went in to the FA Cup having won four league games in the space of 10 days to move up to fourth in the table and Caddis admits that confidence in the group is high.

He added: “When you’re winning games it brings happiness throughout the club, not just the players and management.

“It’s definitely more enjoyable when you’re winning.

“They are all tough in this league.

“But our form in the league is terrific at the minute and we will go there full of confidence.

“We have a bit of a build up to work on them and we will go there to win.”

Caddis has played 16 times for Rovers since joining on a two-year deal in the summer following a spell on trial.

Most of his appearances have come at right back, but he was switched to the left against Crewe, a position he says isn’t one he’s played too regularly.

“It was all right, it is different playing on the opposite side of the pitch” he said of his left back role.

“To be honest I think it was the first time I’ve ever started at left back.

“Managers have always said that I can play there if needs be but 10 years people have been saying that to me and it’s never actually happened so to start there was a bit different, but I enjoyed it to get a game and hopefully I can play the next game.”
