Harrison Biggins believes the lessons learned from Tuesday’s defeat at York City will stand Rovers in good stead as they progress towards the start of the season.
Rovers were off-colour at the LNER Community Stadium and slipped to a 1-0 loss.
While frustrated to lose the game, midfielder Biggins says the performance gave the squad and staff pause for thought and insists all are determined to show improvement in Saturday’s latest friendly at Scunthorpe United.
“The York game was a real test for us,” the 27-year-old said. “The defeat, pre-season or not, you don’t want to lose games and we’ve said that. Things are going to go against us between now and the start of the season.
“But it’s a chance to learn from Tuesday night and hopefully, looking forward to Scunthorpe on Saturday, get a good performance and that winning feeling.”
