Gilbert: View From A Rover

Gilbert: View From A Rover

Peter Gilbert returned to the Owls squad on Saturday for the first time since he picked up his knee injury - we ask the editor from our sister site, Vital Doncaster Rovers, how he got on at the Keepmoat.

-------------------------------------------

1. How did Gilbert do at Rovers in a nutshell?

OK, fitted in well, did the job he was brought in to do.

2. What were his strengths and weaknesses with you?

Seemed strong in a tackle, and track backed well. Slotted in to the team well and didn't look out of place at all, linked up well with the rest of defence. Only weakness was he tired early in his first few games, which was understandable as he hasn't been playing. A good League One player, though I'd want to see more of him to know if he could cut it in the Championship on a regular basis.

3. What did the Rovers fans make of a 'Wendy' playing for Rovers, and what was the general feeling of him?

No animosity at all, the fans were impressed with him.

4. Would you have wanted to keep him if you could?

Not sure. We've already two good left backs at the club, and Gilbert was brought in when injury and suspensions kicked in. Personally don't think he's much better than we've got, which isn't to say he's a bad player, just that I'd pick young Sean McDaid ahead of him. Though I get the feeling we didn't see all he has to offer when fully fit. Would be useful addition to squad but not an 'essential buy'.

5. What were his stats like? Did he get a fair crack of the whip or make any assists?

Played in every game during his stay here with the exception of the game at Crewe in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. Had a couple of shots at goal, but alas, nothing went in for him. Didn't get too many chances to get forward but when he did put some good balls in.
