Defender Charlie Seaman has reflected on his season so far and looks forward to Doncaster Rovers’ fixture against Crawley Town tomorrow evening.

The full-back has been in and out of the starting eleven this season, but is determined to nail down a starting spot in the side for the rest of the campaign.

The former West Ham youth prospect played as the Rovers lost 3-1 to Salford at the weekend.

In a press conference, he said: “You can’t expect to stay in the team if you are not performing. I want to stay in the team and nail down a position.

“I’ve had to work hard to get back in. I just need to be consistent and hopefully I’ll stay in the team.”

The defender has played in more in recent weeks in a variety of positions, including left-back and as a left winger.

“It has been up and down since I signed. I played towards the back of 2022 and I’m comfortable on either side. The manager asked if I can play there and I had before on loan at Maidstone United.”

The 23-year-old believes the mid-table side can still have a successful season, despite being 10 points off the play-offs.

Mr Seaman said: “We’ll take it game by game and take it from there but every game is a must win. We can’t take our foot off the gas.”

The former Bournemouth defender also praised manager Danny Schofield, despite some fans expressing their discontent with him.

“He’s a great manager, he’s implemented a style we like to play. He makes it clear what he needs and what you need to do as a player.

“We’ve got a good group of boys and there’s no negativity in the building.”

Seaman has made 27 appearances for the South Yorkshire side since he signed in 2020. With his contract expiring at the end of the season, the right-back is determined to earn a new contract.

“You can say you aren’t thinking about it but contracts are always at the back of your mind. Sometimes it’s about putting yourself in the shop window and I’m working hard to prove my worth.

“If you perform, the contract will come. Here or elsewhere.”
