SCOTTY ON OXFORD TEST

11 November 2021

"It’s a positive place at the minute and we need to keep it that way"

Scotty Fraser hopes that Town can take their recent form into three 'huge' games in League One.

Town host sixth-placed Oxford on Saturday before a trip to Sunderland the following weekend, a midweek FA Cup first round replay at Oldham being sandwiched in the middle. 

Following the trip to Stadium of Light, high-flying Rotherham will travel to Portman Road on Tuesday, 23 November.

"We’ve been on a good run of form," said Scotty. "I feel like we should’ve won the Plymouth game with the chances we had. 

"Our next three League games are huge. We’re only four points off of the likes of Oxford. Saturday is huge but we just need to look at ourselves."

The midfielder, who last featured in the trip to Cambridge in mid-October, returned to action on Tuesday night against Colchester in the Papa John's Trophy.

Operating in a deeper role than he has so far this term, the 26-year-old got 90 minutes under his belt as the Blues won 4-3 on penalties following a goalless draw.

"Once you’ve been out for a few games through injury, you just want to get back out there in any game that you can," he continued.

"I thought I played well and I thought the team played well overall, we just lacked that last bit which is obviously the most important part.

"I played as part of a two and it was something that I enjoyed. As I’ve said before, I’ll play wherever the gaffer needs me to play. We’ve got a lot of good players in every position here so we’ve got strength all over the pitch."

A crowd of over 20,000 is expected when Town host Oxford on Saturday. Tickets remain on sale here.
