Gaffer plays down favourites tag

Evans spoke to BBC Radio Sheffield yesterday whilst taking a break from training after feeling unwell recently, and claims that although his side looks good on paper they have it all to prove when the season kicks off.

"I don't know why we're the favourites when you look at the spending power of Bradford and Fleetwood," he said. "It's something we're going to have to live with and deliver to.

"There's a lot of good teams who have signed some excellent players in this division this summer."

Evans will hope to draw on his success with former side Crawley Town, who claimed promotion last season, and added: "We're better on paper (than Crawley) but the one thing you can't take away from those Crawley players is that they delivered.

"We still don't know if our players can do that. Time will tell."
