More minutes for the players at Morecambe

Mowbray to utilise his squad once more

21 July 2017

Tony Mowbray will follow the same formula as previous pre-season outings when Rovers face Morecambe this Friday night.

The Rovers boss expects to play every available member of his first team squad for the game at the Globe Arena - kick-off 7.30pm.

Following tonight's match against the Shrimps, Mowbray will use next week's friendlies against Grimsby Town and Carlisle United to give his players more game time, but for now it is all about the group getting more minutes.

"It will be the same scenario as what we have done in the games before," said the manager.

"I think in next week's games we'll try to home in on a starting team. But I think we have to still give everybody minutes, we have to still utilise the young players whilst we try to fill out the squad a bit more with some experience.

"I think Friday everybody will get a game again, it is about getting the minutes, but next week we'll be looking to play some 90 minute games for more footballers as the season starts the following week."

Craig Conway will be assessed after missing Tuesday's 8-0 win over York City with a tight hamstring, whilst new signing Dominic Samuel isn't expected to feature having only joined on Wednesday.

Fans can pay on the door this evening at the Globe Arena, ticket prices are £10 Adults, £8 Concessions (65 and over), £6 18-23s and £3 for Under-18s.
