Craig Conway insists Rovers' season must start now, as he declares himself fit for Saturday's game against Bradford City.

The 32-year-old has missed the opening three games of the campaign with a hamstring injury picked up in pre-season.

Conway admits he has been a frustrated spectator, as Rovers have struggled to find their feet in League One, but he is looking forward to getting back on the pitch and contributing to the cause.

"It's been hard, obviously missing the last couple of weeks (of pre-season) and then missing the first two games - or three with the cup game as well," said the Scot.

"It's been really frustrating just to watch, but I'm feeling really good and fit. I've been back training for about 10 days now.

"I'm glad I did all the running and stuff like that, and I was involved in the Barrow game and Sparta Prague game, so I've missed a little bit but not too much, so I'm looking forward to getting back involved."

Despite the disappointing start, Conway insists there is no time to feel sorry for yourself and he is confident a positive run of results is just around the corner.

"We know where we want to be this season," he added. "We want to go straight back up.

"We've not started great, but we can't dwell on that. We've got a big game on Saturday and I think we've pretty much got everybody fit, so hopefully we can go on and start the season off.

"You can be down in the dumps about it, but the games come thick and fast and we're more than capable of going and winning games anywhere, so that will be the plan this week."
