Five facts about Bradley Dack

28 June 2017

Rovers secured the signing of one of the brightest prospects in league football when Dack joined from Gillingham for a fee of £750,000 plus add-ons, on an initial three-year deal.

The 23-year-old hopes that his experience of League One can serve him well at Rovers, but he knows that he'll first have to work hard to earn a place in the side.

"He just said to me that he just wants me to go out there and play," said Dack.

"I've played against these teams before and he's seen clips and videos and watched me in games and he just said 'listen, you are an attack-minded player and I want you to go and express yourself in the final third of the of the pitch'.

"He has given me that licence to go and express myself which is what you need to hear as a player.

"Obviously it is going to be tough to get in the team because of the players in the squad, but you've got your own ability and hopefully I can get in there."

With over 150 appearances under his belt in League One, Dack knows that Rovers won't find life easy in their new surroundings, and admits that there'll be times when they'll have to show their battling qualities to get the points.

"It is a tough league," he added. "I think it is completely different to the Championship.

"There are some tough games and tough places to go to on a cold Tuesday night to try and win. So we've got to learn how to win all types of games.

"There are going to be games where we dominate possession, but there are going to be games where it is going to be a bit of a fight.

"You've got to roll your sleeves up and that is what this league is like."
