Lund would love to stay

Bristol Rovers

Stoke loanee Matthew Lund has expressed his desire to extend his spell with Bristol Rovers.

The 21-year-old midfielder impressed on his debut in last weekend’s goalless draw with Oxford.

“I really enjoyed Saturday,” he told The Bristol Evening Post.

“It’s completely different. Reserve team football is a lot less competitive and you get players coming back from injury that might not be 100 per cent.

“I want to start every game, just like everyone else. I feel settled in and I’m enjoying it.

“I think I have one game left of my loan spell, but I’d love to extend it because I want to be playing football – although it’s up to the manager.”
