Adams expecting strong opposition in Bristol Rovers

2 September 2022

Derek Adams says Bristol Rovers have a strong squad and are one of the ‘bigger clubs’ in Sky Bet League One this season.

The Shrimps head to the Memorial Stadium hoping to get the better of Joey Barton’s Gas side, who have picked up seven points from their six league games, and the gaffer says his side will be more than ready for Saturday’s game. 
“They have got a squad that they have built from last season into this season and it is very strong,” he said. 
“They are one of the bigger clubs, fan base wise it is excellent, and they always create a good atmosphere when you go there. 
“We are not one of the big boys, we have a good group of players that want to do well and stay in the league for another season.” 
Despite defeat last time out in Sky Bet League One, Adams says his team created a number of openings through the match and has challenged his side to be more clinical on the day. 
“That’s our biggest problem at this moment in time, we created 17 chances last week against MK Dons and they did exactly the same against us, but they were more clinical on the day, we just have to be better in front of goal,” he added. 
“They were great finishes, Will Grigg’s two finishes we probably could have defended better with the movement.
"When you have quality players like him in your team, you’ve got an opportunity.
“The only reason why we are in League One is because we have done well enough to be there, we all enjoy being in League One.”
