Manager Grant McCann wants to get fans up of their feet with an exciting brand of football this season as he targets a strong record at the Keepmoat Stadium.

This weekend's Sky Bet League One opening home clash with Wycombe serves as McCann's competitive home debut, and he is determined not to let Wanderers spoil the party.

"Wycombe are a very strong team and Gareth Ainsworth has done a tremendous job to get them up to this division with limited resources, they're a threat and cause a lot of problems all over the pitch," he said.

"We have to make sure we try and nullify them, wmake sure our threats can hurt theirs on the day, but first and foremost we have to match their energy as they're a very energetic side, especially in midfield, so we have to match, if not better it."

Rovers will be looking for a second win from their opening two games, following last weekend's 3-2 victory at Southend United, and McCann is assured his side are constantly looking to improve.

"We know the first half last weekend wasn't great, we didn't set out to do the things we needed to do, but then we had those 20 minutes where we were outstanding and now we want to transfer that to Saturday," he added.

"There's always different challenges, every team has their own way of setting up, but we have plenty of ways to play too that we've worked on for the past five or six weeks, home games might see us on the ball more, so we have to make sure we take control.

"The players have already got the message from me, if we want to get the fans going they have to produce on the pitch, we want to get them off their seats by playing the right way, we want to create chances and score goals and that's what we have to do."

Rovers are looking to build on the victory against Southend when Wycombe Wanderers visit the Keepmoat Stadium in the first home game of the season on Saturday August 11.
