Stanley v Rovers - Team news

11 July 2015

Rovers will play two squads of eleven for this afternoon's pre-season friendly match against Accrington Stanley.

The first half team, captained by striker Jordan Rhodes, features trialists Giles Coke, Dean Furman and Liam Nolan, whilst the second half team, captained by Grant Hanley, features another trialist Sacha Petshi.

Shane Duffy and Anton Forrester make welcome returns to action, whilst former Stanley trainee Connor Mahoney, and loan man John O'Sullivan, are back on show at the Crown Ground.

Jason Lowe and Chris Taylor aren't quite ready for match action, and it is the same with Adam Henley and Corry Evans who returned to training late due to international commitments. Rudy Gestede misses out with a knock.
