WATCH | McCann looks ahead to Notts County clash

18 August 2023

Grant McCann insists he has no concerns over the way Rovers have started the season and us purely focused making sure they achieve their goals by the end of the campaign.

Rovers are looking to build on their first point of the season in midweek when Notts County visit the Eco-Power Stadium on Saturday.

McCann is maintaining a calm approach to bringing improvement from his team and has confidence  in the group.

“Don’t get me wrong, we’d have loved a better start than the one we’ve had,” he said. “But ultimately it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.

“We know we’ll be judged on where we are after 46 league games and we still have a firm belief that we can have ourselves right in the picture.

“We know it can take a bit of time and we’re focused on things we know we have to improve on - the basics of football and things like that. We know we can play. We’ve shown it against Hull and, although it was only a pre-season friendly, we’ve shown it here against Sheffield Wednesday.

“We understand that we need to do both sides of the game. I spoke about it when I first came in here  that in this division you have to be good enough to play but you’ve also got to be good enough to go over presses.

“Maybe we’ve got stuck a little bit in between so it’s important that we stripped it back for the boys going into the Mansfield game to try to build the game going forward.”
