Though he started the campaign as understudy to Ian Lawlor, the 25-year-old was given his chance to start in the League One clash with Peterborough United in mid-September and has been an ever-present in the league since.

He has made 19 appearances in all competitions and has kept five clean sheets, helping Rovers deliver one of the best defensive records in the third tier with only three sides having conceded fewer goals.
