Rovers won 4-0 at AFC Telford on Saturday without defender Tommy Spurr, midfielders Jason Lowe and Corry Evans, goalkeeper Paul Robinson and striker Chris Brown before heading out to a summer training camp in Portugal.

Bowyer told the club's official website: "Tommy has a niggle, Lowey had a sore toe, same with Chris Brown, he just had a bit of soreness. So whilst you'd like to get 45 minutes there's no point risking them any further.

"Corry is just coming back so he's just had a fitness day, same with Paul Robinson, he stayed at Brockhall. We've three goalkeepers so we let him stay there and get some fitness work in as well.

"They will go to Portugal on Monday and we expect them to be training on Monday."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
