Preview: Pollock on MK Dons

3 September 2021

Monday arrival Mattie Pollock already feels settled in at Cheltenham Town ahead of this weekend's home clash with MK Dons.

The 19-year-old defender has had a full week of training and a Papa John's Trophy appearance under his belt before Saturday's clash at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

Having joined Premier League side Watford in the summer he's instantly come out on loan to build on the already impressive tally of games he's got on his CV from his time at Grimsby Town in the Football League and he's determined to show what he can do in his time as a Robins player.

"The lads have been unbelievable and made me feel a part of the team straight away," he said.

"It helped me with the (Bristol Rovers) game and helped me have a game of practice in a way.

"I've played quite a lot at a young age and I'm absolutely delighted to have signed for Watford. But I knew when I signed for Watford it was not going to be an easy pathway in terms of going straight to the first team and playing week-in-week-out.

"Training with the first team itself is an achievement really with the likes of the players that they have there.

"I always try and back my ability and I wanted to come out and show Watford and people that I can do it at the next step from League Two in League One and hopefully keep climbing."
