The Manchester City defender joined Rovers on loan until the end of the season and is keen to make his mark as the season enters its final stages.

Rekik said: "I hope that we can push on to the play-offs and get promotion in the end.

"I just hope that we can win as many games as we can. It is good for me to be here.

"As a young player you need to play every week to make yourself a better player. There are a lot of competition for places, it is good for the team.

"There are a lot of games, we've got a chance of the play-offs and I hope we can make it. The belief is definitely here in the changing room."

The 18-year-old Dutch international worked with Rovers boss Michael Appleton during a loan spell at Portsmouth last year and is delighted to link up with him again.

"I was on loan last year at Portsmouth so I worked with the manager before," added Rekik.

"I had a good time there, I liked the manager, he's very honest with you face to face, he says what he wants to and I think that is good for a young player as well.

"He gives you a boost in the changing room, he keeps talking to you, that feels good."
