Addis calls for more attacking intent from Rovers

KARL ADDIS has promised that Rovers will be more expansive as they look to recreate their early-season form, starting tomorrow night at North.

KARL ADDIS has promised that Rovers will be more expansive as they look to recreate their early-season form, starting tomorrow night at North.

In one of two midweek Priaulx League encounters, Rovers face a North side they have already beaten in both league clashes between the two this campaign, 4-2 and 3-2 respectively.

However, North gained revenge with their comprehensive Guernsey FA Cup victory 10 days ago and Rovers coach Addis is mindful of the threat from William Woodford’s in-form side.

‘North are a team I have lots of respect for because they go out there and play good football in the right manner,’ he said.

‘I saw them in their draw with Bels on Friday and thought they played extremely well, they are in really good form after a slow start and will be very tough.

‘But the great thing from my point of view is that we are going into these games now confident of competing, which wasn’t the case before this season.’

Before that is tonight’s clash between Bels and Sylvans at the Track, with the reigning champions now without the services of Luke Winch for three months as he has gone to live in France.

Somebody buy Karl Addis a Pocket Book of Football Cliches for an early Christmas Present. I hope Rovers give 110% and cover every blade of grass for Karl and do tremendous in a game which really is 2 halves.

Really

Is this the same team that had one of their players sent off for an alledged headbutt and the same player then is alledged to have spat at a supporter?

Perhaps not the attacking intent the coach has suggested, let us hope not
