Gary Bowyer is looking forward to seeing his squad back in action in their first pre-season outing this Saturday.

Rovers travel to Shropshire to take on Conference new boys AFC Telford United at the New Bucks Head Stadium tomorrow, as preparations for the 2014-15 season take a step up.

The Rovers boss has something of a rarity with a fully fit squad at his disposal, and the manager has revealed that each player will get some minutes under their belts.

Speaking ahead of the game, Bowyer said: "It has been a very good week, we've increased the player's levels every day in training, it has been very good.

"The lads have come back in fantastic shape and the football has been very good, we are looking forward to Saturday's first run out.

"Everybody will play 45 minutes, we'll have two teams play, plus some of the young lads will get an opportunity.

"Fortunately at this moment in time we've got everybody fit and well and long may that continue."

Fans can pay on the turnstiles at the ground from 1.30pm with admission prices of £10.00 for adults, £8.00 for concessions aged 65 and over and £2.00 for supporters under 16.

The Rovers fans are situated in the Budget Gas Frank Nagington Stand.

Kick-off is at 3.00pm. For those unable to attend Rovers Player will be providing full match commentary.
