Good to be up and running

13 July 2017

After getting amongst the goals in Rovers' first outing of the season last weekend at Barrow, Craig Conway has set his sights on finding the back of the net on a regular basis this upcoming season.

The popular Scot opened the scoring in the win over the Cumbrians and believes with the way boss Tony Mowbray wants the side to play, there is no reason why he can't beat last season's goal tally of seven.

Conway admitted that after an intensive week of training at Brockhall there were a few heavy legs at Barrow, but knows it is all part of the preparation in readiness for the new season.

I think the way we play, and the way the manager wants us to play, as wide players we should score more goals.

"The first game is always a test getting the legs going," said the midfielder.

"The week leading up to it is a tough week with all the running, the legs are a bit heavy, but getting 45 minutes is what it is all about.

"You want to play the games so the quicker the running is done and you can get into the games the better. So it was good to get a runout with 45 minutes each and to get a goal was really good.

"I think the way we play, and the way the manager wants us to play, as wide players we should score more goals.

"I got seven last year which was good so hopefully I can add to that next season and add a few more goals as well."

Rovers continue their pre-season preparations this Friday afternoon when they face Sparta Prague in Salzburg.
