Lewis hoping to be involved at Doncaster

Midfielder Clayton Lewis is hoping to make his debut for the club when Scunthorpe United visit Doncaster Rovers in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday evening.

The New Zealand international has featured on the substitutes’ bench in recent weeks but is yet to start a game following his arrival earlier this month.

“I’ve been waiting for my moment and getting extra fitness work in, so I’m really looking forward to Tuesday night and hopefully I can get some minutes,” Lewis told the club’s official site.

“I’m fitter than I was when I arrived so it will hopefully be my first game for this club, and I can’t wait to play more times with these guys.

“Hopefully I can show what I do – set up and score a few goals. We’re both through but I’m going to put in 100 per cent and do what I can do to prove myself to the gaffer and everyone around here.

“It might not be the biggest crowd but everyone will be 100 per cent into their tackles and challenges, and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Lewis added that he believed he had been adapting well to the English game in training: “It’s been really good so far, all the boys have been very welcoming.

“Everyone around me has been very positive about everything I’m doing, and pushing me hard.”
