Elliott: Pirates success comes first

13 October 2009 11:09
Elliott, who is three appearances short of 200 in the league for Rovers, has yet to start a League One game this campaign after tearing a thigh muscle in pre-season.[LNB]In his absence, Paul Trollope's men have stationed themselves in the upper reaches of the table and Elliott is keen for that to continue - even if it means him staying on the bench.[LNB]"It really has been a very disappointing start to the season for me personally," he told the Bristol Evening Post. "I have been on the sideline champing at the bit to get a chance but the lads have done fantastically well and the team has been winning.[LNB]"I am so pleased for the boys because of the start they have had and the position we are currently in the league is great. It has been bittersweet for me, but I have been in the game a long time and I know my chance will come.[LNB]"I want to play as many games as I can until the end of my career but sulking is not going to improve my chances of doing that. I know that if I get in the team I will want to keep the shirt and I would hope whoever is not in the side would get behind me."[LNB][LNB]
