Paul Coutts played 90 minutes in Friday night's friendly success over Rotherham United.
The midfielder, who has recently signed a new contract, spoke to the media after the game at the New York Stadium.
"It was a good work out, totally different to the Malaga and Chesterfield games. It was competitive and another 90 minutes in the legs.
"It is going to be a tough season but the togetherness in the group will help us."
