It’s all Rover bar the shouting, according to the bookies, who have put the Shots at 25/1 for promotion from the Vanarama Conference.

Unsurprisingly, Ladbrokes have installed Darrell Clarke’s relegated Bristol Rovers as the 6/1 pre kick-off favourites to storm straight back up to League Two – with West Country rivals Forest Green Rovers just behind on 7/1.

Grimsby Town are rated next followed by last season’s play-off finalists Gateshead and Eastleigh, the reputed big-spenders who have risen from Conference South.

Aldershot Town start their season on Saturday at home to Altrincham before trips to Eastleigh and AFC Telford United.

Meanwhile Brett Williams, who bagged 28 goals for the Shots last season, is SkyBet's favourite to be the league's top goalscorer.

Aldershot's frontman is 8/1 to be Vanarama Conference's top striker in 2014/15 with new signing Dan Fitchett at 28/1.

Rivals Woking can be backed at 18/1 with the bookmakers expecting Dartford – who were handed a relegation reprieve – to go down in a possible scrap with Welling Utd and Southport plus promoted Dover Athletic and Altrincham.
