Schofield looking forward to Stevenage challenge

25 October 2022

Danny Schofield believes Rovers will have to match Stevenage’s work ethic before looking to implement their own style on the game against Steve Evans’ side.

Schofield is set for his first home game in charge of Rovers since his appointment as head coach, and will go up against a team currently sat second in the division.

On what he expects from Stevenage:

“Every team poses different challenges in terms of style of play, personnel and the profile of their players and Stevenage will be full of confidence despite their defeat on Saturday.

“We will have to step up the challenge against them, in terms of making sure we win the first contacts and the second balls.

“Then we have to try and implement our style of play and the way we want to go about things, we will try and nullify their strengths while exploiting their weaknesses.

“The players were worked well on Monday and I’m working closely with Sam [Bowring, head of sports science], to make sure everyone is at their peak levels come Tuesday night.”

On team news:

“George [Miller] has come out of the game well, there is still some stiffness in his back but we’ve had the medical team working with him so he will be ready for Tuesday.

“We will assess Tommy Rowe and see how he responds to another day of training, and then make a call on whether he’s in the squad.

“We got through the weekend pretty unscathed which we’re really pleased about, so we have nothing new to report on that front.”
