Grant McCann says Rovers are set for a tough start to the season as Harrogate Town visit the Eco-Power Stadium on the opening day of the season.
“It’s a tough start,” he said. “It’s a Yorkshire derby.
“I watched them at Hartlepool last week and you can see their threats, particularly at the top end of the pitch. We’ll have to be aware of that.
“But like any game, we’ll focus mainly on us and how we want to go about the game, particularly at home.
“And we want to make sure our fans roar us on to the three points.”
