Cantley Park is a busier place again as the team return to training.

The Rovers boys are back in training and are working hard in their bid to bounce straight back to the Championship.

It's been a long summer for Paul Dickov's men, but midfielder Harry Forrester declared earlier this week that it's "back to business" for him and his team mates.

Forrester admitted that he was frustrated with his lack of football last year but went on to say that he hopes to play a huge part in the team next season:

"I want to be on the team sheet whenever possible next season, and it will be up to me to work hard and stay there."

Forrester has a tailored programme in place to look after his knee following surgery last season, but is confident he will be ready for the start of the season.

The players had their fitness assessed after the summer break the previous week, and everyone reported back in good shape raring to go.

Among the numbers were Jamie McCombe who spent the majority of last season injured, James Husband, Richie Wellens, Theo Robinson and South African captain Dean Furman.

First team coah Paul Butler spoke to Rovers Player earlier in the week:

"Everyone has come back in great shape which gives you confidence going into the season. We are pleased with the group we have so far, but there will be additions over the coming days and weeks for sure," Butler said.

The squad have 2 more weeks of training begore heading to Portugal for an intense 6 days of training in the heat.
