Ambitious Brian Horton wants to see the number of players on international duty from Rovers to double.

The assistant boss says it is a big honour for Rovers to have six players receiving call ups during the international break.

But Horton wants more faces to be called away in the future as it will show the progress of the side.

“The more the merrier,” Horton said. “Let’s hope in future years we can have more go because it means you’re being successful.

“The more that go away, the more it shows you’re improving the players, improving the club and the club is moving forward.”

David Cotterill was an unused substitute as Wales beat Macedonia in Cardiff on Friday night. Wales face Group A leaders Belgium tomorrow.

Theo Robinson could only watch on as Jamaica saw their World Cup qualification hopes ended with a 2-0 defeat to USA. Robinson will hope to better his unused sub role when Jamaica face Honduras tomorrow.

Bongali Khumalo and Dean Furman both started for South Africa in a friendly in Morocco which finished 1-1. The pair will report back for training tomorrow.
