WATCH | McCann reacts to draw at Scunthorpe United

22 July 2023

Grant McCann feels Rovers are heading in the right direction as the start of the season approaches.

Rovers battled out at goalless draw at Scunthorpe United in the latest friendly. And while McCann believes there is plenty of work left to do in the remaining fortnight of pre-season, he is confident progress is being made.

“It was a good test,” he said. “They’ve recruited well here at Scunthorpe over pre-season so we knew it was going to be a good test, similar to the York game.

“Some aspects of the game I liked, some I didn’t. Again, there’s a lot to work on - it’s two weeks today until the first game so hopefully we can show more of what we’ve been working on on the training ground.

“I thought the boys gave everything, getting about the pitch but for the first 60 minutes or so, we didn’t get to the second balls enough and compete to a level I believe we can get to.

“There’s a lot for us to do and it’s going to take us a bit of time but I feel we’re heading in the right direction.”
