'If It's Football, It's Vital'

DRFC Only five substitutes from this season

The Football League have announced that clubs will only be able to name five substitutes from the start of the 2011/12 season.

Football League clubs voted for the change at their EGM, which was held at the King Power Stadium - Leicester.

The move sees clubs having two less options on the bench for games in all three divisions of the Football League.

A spokesperson for the Football League commented on the decision, when they said, "This was felt to be a sensible and prudent step given the financial challenges facing many football clubs."

All clubs will still be able to name seven substitutes for Carling and FA Cup games.

Rovers often struggled to name seven substitutes last season when the club were hit with a crippling injury list.
