Midweek Sport - - THURS­DAY SEPT 27 -

BRADLEY WIG­GINS has noth­ing on the Don­caster squad – who are try­ing to avoid their own ver­sion of the yel­low jersey.

Olympic cy­cling ace Wig­gins earned the iconic shirt for be­com­ing the first Brit to win the Tour de France this sum­mer. But for Dean Saun­ders’ troops their ver­sion of the yel­low jersey isn’t quite so pres­ti­gious, as it’s handed to the player deemed to have had the big­gest night­mare in train­ing each day. League One Rovers travel to Nor­wich tonight and winger David Cot­ter­ill (left) re­vealed: “We’re all up for it in train­ing to make sure we avoid the yel­low jersey.

“No-one wants to be seen as the worst trainer.”

The Ca­naries are with­out a league win this sea­son ahead of their ba­nana-skin round tie with the York­shire side.

Even so, Chris Hughton will rest most of his big names be­fore Sat­ur­day’s Premier League clash with fel­low strug­glers Liver­pool.

The Ca­naries boss said: “It’s fair to say there will be a few changes.

“The spirit in the camp’s still very good and that first league win isn’t far away if we keep play­ing like we have been.”
