After signing for the Robins from Wigan during the close season, Goulding acknowledges that it will feel odd lining up against his former teammates.
“It’s going to be a strange one with me playing there for so long,” he told Rovers Review.
“I’ve got a lot of good mates there and I’ve only ever played against Wigan once before, when I was on loan at Salford earlier in my career.
“I usually keep myself to myself before a game, but I’m sure there’ll be the odd person getting in touch to send a bit of banter my way!
“I’ll take it on the chin for now though and just make sure I give it back to them if we win!
“They’re a good team and the way they play is relentless.
“In defence, we’ve got to be really alert, particularly on the edges.
“Having two weeks to prepare is probably a good things for us though and hopefully we can put in a good performance.”
