Brian Flynn: Looking to maintain fitness levels

Rovers were without a game at the weekend owing to MK Dons' involvement in the FA Cup and do not play again until Saturday - the first time they will have been in action since January 19.

Midfielder Martin Wood made his return from injury against a strong United team at the Premier League club's Carrington training ground. Doncaster lost 2-1, with winger Kyle Bennett scoring a good individual goal.

Assistant manager/player Rob Jones told the club's official website: "It was a good workout against a good United side and it has helped us with having no game last Saturday.

"It was good experience for the young lads Johnny Maxted and Liam Wakefield, who both had good games.

"Martin Woods got 50 minutes under his belt and came through alright, plus Kyle scored a good individual effort from the edge of the box."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!

Probably. But presumably he would not swap one bench for another. We have mails on over-hyped players, Arsenal enthusiasm, UEFA, FIFA and naked dudes...
