Bradley's a brother to me, says Chapman

Returning Rovers Harry Chapman says he's thrilled to be back on the training ground alongside 'brother' Bradley Dack, and admits he is thankful for the support shown by his team-mate.

It's been a long road back for Chapman, with the 20-year-old missing the last five months of football after picking up a bad hamstring injury.
 
But back in the building and back fit, Harry's said that keeping in contact with Brad kept his spirits up during the darker days of his recovery period.
 
"He’s one of my good friends now, despite only knowing him a short space of time," Chapman said to iFollow Rovers. "He’s like a brother to me now. I really get on with him.
 
“I’d ring him when I was struggling with my rehab and we’d have a laugh. We’d talk about everything. He has all the talent and can certainly pull my sort of tricks off if he tried!
 
And as for the nutmeg competition with Dack that's been going on this season, is there any chance of Chapman triumphing come the end of the campaign? “I’ll give a good go but I think he’s too far ahead now!" Harry joked.
 
And ahead of the final 10 games of the campaign, Chapman believes Rovers have enough to ensure promotion to the Championship come May.
 
With a full squad to choose from, with the likes of Peter Whittingham and Ben Gladwin being available for selection, Harry reckons Rovers are ready to pick up the points and go all out for the top two.
 
“There are three really good teams going for the top two spots. I think we’ve got the talent in the dressing room to do what everyone thinks we can do, and that’s win the title," he added.
 
“You prefer to have already played your games and have the points on the board. We have too much talent and desire to slacken off now."
