Robbie set to start Ninian Park career

Last updated : 04 August 2007 By Michael Morris
Boss Dave Jones has confirmed that Robbie Fowler will play as long as he can against FC Twente at Ninian Park this afternoon.

"Robbie will play for as long as he possibly can as he needs to get match-fit.

"Endurance-wise he is on a par with the rest of the squad, but he is just lacking a bit of sharpness and that will improve with the more game time he gets.

"He is very sore and stiff because he is training for nearly three hours a day as we are trying to get him to the same sort of level as the rest of the boys.

"I've seen enough of his movement and little darting runs in training to know that he will do very well for us.

Kick off this afternoon is at 3:00pm.
