WATCH | Grant McCann reflects on the win at Rossington Main

9 July 2023

Grant McCann was pleased with the workout his players received in the opening friendly of pre-season at Rossington Main.

The Rovers boss has prioritised fitness in the early stages of pre-season and was happy following the 3-1 win at Oxford Street.

“It was a good exercise for us,” he said. “Fitness into the legs, 45 minutes into most of the squad.

“Some good goals, which is pleasing. It was nice to see Rowey back among the goals - I’ve seen him do that so many times, arriving across the front post.

“A good goal from George Broadbent and a really good goal from George Miller as well. All in all it’s been a good day.

“After the first 15 or 20 minutes we got to grips with the game better in terms of what we wanted to do. We’ve probably had two or three days tactical work with the lads, and probably not even that, so we’ve still got a lot of work to do.

“But the boys showed really good fitness and I’m pleased with that.

“It’s great to see the fans. When we came off I heard them say it was 2,000 fans which is unbelievable and great for Rossington as well as the players to see so many of our fans.”
