Boss keen to avoid early exit

17 June 2015

Manager Gary Bowyer is hoping for improved fortunes when Rovers come up against Shrewsbury Town in this season’s Capital One Cup first round.

Rovers were handed a home draw against the League One new boys and Bowyer insists that he will not be taking Micky Mellon’s side lightly.
 
“It was nice to get a home tie,” said Bowyer. “However, we are under no illusion that it will be a tough game. 

“They got promoted last season and the manager, Micky Mellon, has done a fantastic job for them.
 
“We will have a good look at them leading up to the game and decide how to approach the tie. 
 
“Last year we gave quite a few of the youngsters a chance against Scunthorpe and we suffered and were knocked out. 
 
“That’s two years on the trot that we have gone out in the first round and it’s not something I wish to repeat this year.”
