WATCH | McCann looks ahead to Mansfield Town test

14 August 2023

Grant McCann admitted he employed a change of tack with his preparation for Tuesday's clash with Mansfield Town.

The Rovers boss said he was concerned with certain aspects of the defeats to Harrogate Town and Newport County which he felt required closer than normal inspection than he would typically do prior to a midweek game.

"We watched the Newport game back so we can learn from it and improve from it as well as looking ahead to the game on Tuesday," McCann said. “Usually with a midweek game approaching, we try to move quickly onto the next one but I felt over the last couple of league games that we’re just not doing well enough at the minute.

“We want to address that, strip it back a bit and go back to the basics of what it takes to win football games. We have to make sure we get that right.

“It was a good, open conversation with the players. We need their buy-in because ultimately it’s them out on the pitch, trying to win games for us.

“We had a good day on the training pitch and worked a bit on what we’re going to try to do against Mansfield and hopefully we can show a reaction.”
