Rovers' Under-23s are back in league action this Friday lunchtime when they take on Newcastle United.

Damien Johnson's development squad travel to the north east in fine form looking to claim a fifth consecutive victory in all competitions.

But they come up against a Magpies side that inflicted a 2-0 defeat on Rovers when the two sides met at the end of November. Second half goals from Stuart Findlay and Callum Roberts giving the visitors the points at Leyland.

With the first team in action this Sunday a young side has travelled to Tyneside, kick-off is at 12 noon.
