Paul Keegan says Rovers have no excuses for not sticking to their plan at Fleetwood today.

But the Irish midfielder is hoping for a whole lot more than that - he’s hoping practice makes perfect.

According to Keegan, boss Paul Dickov has been in his element on the training ground over the last fortnight.

“The international break is a good time for the manager to get a hold of us and work on some important aspects of our team shape and our play,” said Keegan.

“I think the manager enjoys it because he’s got a good block of time to work hard with us.

“It’s not just a case of firefighting, like when you play Tuesday, you’re off Wednesday and then you’re getting ready for Saturday. You can’t really do a lot.

“So we’ve had a couple of good weeks and the lads have really enjoyed it.

“We’re looking forward to Fleetwood,” he added.

“The manager’s drilled down exactly what he wants from the game so I don’t think anyone can go out there with any questions about what they should be doing.

“We’ve worked hard so hopefully we can go there and get a result.”

Keegan revealed that Rovers’ training has focused on defensive aspects of their game.

He said: “We’ve conceded too many goals at the start of the season and we’re trying to cut that down.”
