Bris­tol Rovers Di­vi­sion Three run­ners-up of 1973-74

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

BUR­TON boss Gary Rowett ad­mits any ex­pec­ta­tions of pro­mo­tion must be tem­pered by the ab­sence of Jac­ques Maghoma and Calvin Zola.

Zola, who net­ted 16 times in 38 games as the club reached the play-offs, has signed for Aberdeen.

While for­mer Tot­ten­ham young­ster Maghoma has been snapped up by Sh­effield Wed­nes­day and Rowett be­lieves the pair will leave large voids.

“The big ques­tion will be how much will we miss Jac­ques and Calvin,” said Rowett.

“That is the key dif­fer­ence – we are not go­ing to get an­other Jac­ques who is go­ing to win you a game.

“Now I'm not go­ing to say he did it sin­gle handed, be­cause that’s un­fair on the rest of the play­ers, but he came up with a lit­tle bit of magic more of­ten than not.

“You can high­light games, such as Fleet­wood away, where a lit­tle bit of qual­ity just turns the game for you.

“Jac­ques didn’t do it ev­ery game and we will try to score goals from other ar­eas. Can the play­ers that come in show that am­bi­tion with their feet as well as their voices?

“We are not go­ing to know un­til we start – we will try to be a bet­ter team.”
