With the season about to restart does anyone know what the squad fitness status is like? Keen to know if Dack and Holtby will be available?

Also news about the frequency of fixtures.

Holtby and Evans are both back fit. Dack will be a while yet, it was a 9 to 12 month injury 5 month ago and he said last week in an interview that his aim is the start of next season.

I am sure I read that a meeting was to be held on Monday to arrange fixtures and dates.

The meeting has been put back to Tuesday. Interestingly the article stresses that June 20th is only a provisional and that there is feeling amongst some managers that it's too soon.

The fixtures must be broadly in the same order as they would have been played on a non virus world.

Meanwhile the main football authority being the TV companies are taking their time dividing up the spoils.

The outcome awaited with interest.

He looks like he’s been stranded on a remote island for a few years. 

Having Holtby back is a huge bonus.

Not sure why. Apart from 20 minutes in one game, he's looked slow and behind the pace of the game. IMO

Because he is one of our best players. IMO

That remains to be seen. Holtby of a decade ago would be but not this one.

Have to say Holtby has looked like a good footballer but not particularly effective so far. But to be honest that is a significant improvement over attacking players who look neither good nor effective (Gallagher, Brereton, Samuel). At least with him you have a bit of hope.

Disagree with @Sparks Rover about Holtby. He's a decent footballer and I think he was starting to take onus of his position without Dack to worry about. If he can play like he did at Sheffield Wednesday I don't see how he isn't one of our best players. Let's see how the injury has affected him.

Like I say, he's had a good 20 minutes for us. Apart from that we all wait with baited breath. My initial analysis is that his legs have gone, hopefully not.

All 9 games free on iFollow for ST holders.

So £90 of “value”.

https://www.rovers.co.uk/news/2020/june/rovers-to-review-streaming-plans/

i suppose it equates to four home game tickets so reasonable. No sign of a refund yet for those unable/unwilling to watch through iFollow.

Two season ticket holders in our household too ..may seem a daft question but is iFollow only available through a PC/Tablet/Phone or is it possible to stream via a Smart TV ? Or maybe cast from a device to a Smart TV ?

In the UK? I don't think so.

TV over the internet in layman's terms. So basically I pay 35 quid a year for every channel you can imagine plus all the films and box sets etc on demand.
