Bradley Dack says Saturday’s game against Bradford City can’t come soon enough, with the players eager to reward the Rovers supporters with three points.

After a disappointing start to the season, Dack insists the team are determined to right the wrongs from the defeats to Southend and Doncaster, but the 23-year-old knows it won’t be easy against a Bradford City side who narrowly missed out on promotion to the Championship last term.

“It is a game everyone wants to come as soon as possible because we have not made a great start to the season and we want to put things right,” said the summer signing from Gillingham, who came on as a second-half substitute against Doncaster after recovering from a hamstring strain.

“We know what our aim is for this season and there are still 44 games left and we start again on Saturday against Bradford.

“We are under no illusions that it will be a tough game. They reached the play-off final last season and narrowly missed out on promotion, but I am sure we can go there and get a result.

“They have got some very good players, like a lot of teams have in this league, but so have we. We need to make sure we start winning games, starting on Saturday.

“The fans have travelled in great numbers for our first two away games of the season, at Southend and Coventry, and when the supporters are loud and singing like they have been, it gives all the lads a big boost.

“I can imagine there will be a strong following once again this weekend and hopefully we can reward them with all three points.”
