Preview: Broom on facing former club Bristol Rovers

12 August 2019

Versatile midfielder Ryan Broom hopes that Cheltenham Town can use the momentum from Saturday's win over Scunthorpe as a spring board for success as they head to Bristol Rovers in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old sparked a fantastic comeback against the Iron with a left-footed finish in the 68th minute, which was followed by two more goals from Charlie Raglan and Alex Addai within five minutes before Conor Thomas' last minute penalty rounded off a great 4-1 win. 

Broom spent five years at Tuesday's opponents Rovers before securing a move to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium last summer, where he recently signed a new two-year contract extension. 

But the Welshman believes he's going back to the Memorial Stadium as a better player following stints as both a wing-back and in midfield - which has lead to five goals and a similar return for assists with the Robins. 

"I'm looking forward to going back really," he said. "It's quite a nice ground for this level and it will be nice but it will be strange going back with another team but obviously I'm looking forward to it.

"12 months on now (since arriving) I'd like to think I've improved and would like to say I'm a hopefully a better player but a different one as well. I learned my trade as a right-wing back last year and I can play midfield as well."

He added: "The new faces that have come in have obviously improved us. We had a good group last season as well, to improve on that is good, it's been nice to meet them and they've fitted in well. 

"There's always a good chance to get a high team in the second round so we'll hope for the best, turn up, play well and go from there."
