Coppinger focuses on fitness

6 July 2018

Captain James Coppinger says Rovers will continue to build their fitness in the pre-season fixture against Alfreton Town on Saturday.

Grant McCann’s side travel to the Impact Arena as preparations for the 2018/19 Sky Bet League One season continue to take shape, and Coppinger says the first game will be focused on the way the manager wants the side to play.

He said: “From a player’s perspective it is about getting fit, getting the legs going again, and seeing how the manager wants us to play.

“What formations he wants us to play, understanding what your roles are within the team, but first and foremost its about getting fit and playing again which is the most important thing."

Rovers kick-off their Sky Bet League One campaign at Southend United on Saturday August 4, before their first home outing against Wycombe Wanderers the following Saturday.
