The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BRISTOL Rovers boss Dar­rell Clarke is ex­pect­ing Daniel Lead­bit­ter to go from strength to strength this sea­son.

The 24-year-old full-back strug­gled to make an im­pact last year af­ter ar­riv­ing from Here­ford United on a free trans­fer but this sea­son he has looked a dif­fer­ent player.

“Dan has been flour­ish­ing,” said Clarke. “He has all the ath­leti­cism and pace re­quired to go all the way to the top, but there are ar­eas of his game that need im­prov­ing.

“I don’t ever put blind faith in play­ers, but you have to give them a chance to show what they can do over a pe­riod of time.”
