Varney - Build on last season's run

8 July 2014

After the strong end to the last campaign, Luke Varney is predicting a successful season for Rovers.

Gary Bowyer's side ended the 2013-14 season with an unbeaten 12-match run to just miss out on a play-off place, and the striker, who turned his loan move into a permanent one at the beginning of this month, is confident that Rovers can start the new season in the same manner as they ended the old one.

"I think the feeling is that it is going to be a good year coming off the back of the last one," said the striker.

"I think it is this year, we are so buzzing and looking forward to it. We've come back, everything is in position, the chats have been positive, the lads have been positive."

Rovers were the form team in the Championship as last season drew to a close, ending just two points off finishing in the the top six. But Varney is confident they can keep that run going.

"We want that form to continue, we are unbeaten and we beat some great teams as well," added Varney.

"We showed that we can match them easily and we've got a lot more to offer. We've a great staff behind us, a great fitness staff, they've been fantastic with us as well, so everything is in place. There'll be no excuses on our part, we know what we want and hopefully we can start the way we finished.

"It has been a great first few days and it bodes well for a good pre-season and a good start.

"The club has had a bad few years, we all know that, but it is in a great place and we are all so determined to get it back on the map and get it back in the Premier League where it belongs.

"It is twenty years coming up since we won it, so we'd love to get back in the Premier League and get this place going again."
