Joe Romanski has declared that he is ready to step up to the plate should he be called upon for our Sky Bet League Two clash against Grimsby Town on Saturday (3pm KO).
The young defender has been on the fringes of the first-team for much of this season and now looks set to be handed his Town debut tomorrow afternoon after impressing Boss Phil Brown.
Should that chance come then Romanski is ready and raring to go and he feels the hard graft he has been putting in will have him well prepared.
"I'm working hard in training and making sure that if I do get the chance then I'm ready to take it," he said.
"I'm looking forward to it if it does come. If not then I'll keep working hard, get myself in the gym and keep building myself up.
"Coming into the season that was the main goal (to be involved in the first-team) but I've been taking it day-by-day, working hard and getting myself in the gym doing extras so I am ready physically and mentally to compete with a good group of lads.
"Making my debut would mean the world to me and I'm looking forward to it if I do get the chance."
"The Gaffer has made me feel part of the team, I've been training regularly with the first-team, eating with the first-team, doing gym sessions with the first-team and that has done my confidence the world of good.
"It has only motivated me to get better, I didn't expect it to be easy and I'm enjoying the challenge.
"I'm hungry for more and I'm looking to get myself in the team. I'm happy with how the season has panned out and I'm excited about the future.
"Making my debut would mean the world to me and I'm looking forward to it if I do get the chance.
"What better place to do it!
"We're completely focussed on getting into the Play-Offs, we know results have to go our way but we've got to do our jobs first."
And Romanski went on to outline the main strengths and attributes of his game, revealing that he revels in both sides of the game.
"I'm a centre-back, I can also play at left-back, I like to get stuck in, I'm aggressive but I also see myself as a ball-playing defender too," he concluded.
