Schofield believes Trophy provides an opportunity

3 September 2019

John Schofield believes the Trophy will provide a good opportunity for players to show what they can do.

Rovers will welcome Lincoln City to the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday night for their first group game of the competition.

“The gaffer takes every game seriously and whoever plays tomorrow will have a massive opportunity whether they’ve played every game this season or not. It’s a place to showcase commitment, attitude, and skill and gives an opportunity to show your understanding of formations, and how the gaffer wants to play,” said Schofield.

“I would think Danny Cowley will be looking to change one or two, they’ve played a few games since we’ve played them and they’ve played more games than us so I’m sure he’ll want to change things around a bit. We’ll be prepared to play our game regardless of what formation and what personnel Lincoln put together.

“This competition is a great way of getting to Wembley, if you win five or six games then your next game is at Wembley so that’s a massive carrot. I think every player wants to play at Wembley, don’t they?”
