Gary Bowyer knows Rovers will have to be ready for another tough fixture as they face the Foxes this evening.

Rovers have had little time to rest from their derby-day draw with Burnley and now have another tricky away fixture against Leicester City this Tuesday evening, kick-off 7.45pm.

"As soon as the Burnley game finished the focus switched to Leicester," said Rovers boss Bowyer.

"The Championship is relentless and we've had the period where you have the international break and now we've got two games in quick succession.

"It is going to be a good challenge for us again, I know Nigel Pearson well, he's a top bloke and he's a good manager.

"He's been in this division for a good number of years now so he knows it in and out."

The Rovers boss is expecting a good test of his young side's character and believes it will be a good indication as to how much the team have improved so far this season against a Leicester City side riding high in the league.

"It is going to be a battle, but one that we are looking forward to," added Bowyer.

"First and foremost we are going there trying to win the game.

"We are going there to stamp our authority on the game and have a right good go at Leicester.

"We've just got to make sure that we go and give a good account of ourselves again because it will be a good marker against a very good Leicester team."

Tickets will be on sale at the King Power Stadium on the day of the game, priced at £30 Adults, £27 for Seniors and Under 22s, £20 for Under 18s, £11 for Under 12s and £9 for Under 8s.

Supporters who are going to Tuesday's match should note that there are roadworks in the vicinity of the stadium at Leicester and are advised to give themselves plenty of time to get to the ground in time for the 7.45pm kick-off.
