As Rovers visit Dean Court for the first time in 24 years for a league encounter this Saturday, midfielder Corry Evans knows it won't be an easy match.

23rd September 1989 was the last time the two sides met in the league at Bournemouth's home ground, Rovers running out 4-2 winners thanks to goals from Andy Kennedy, Frank Stapleton, Nicky Reid and Scott Sellars.

Rovers' current charges go to Bournemouth looking to pick up their first win on their travels this season, with the Northern Ireland international expecting a tricky match.

"They look a decent team from what I've seen of them," Evans told Rovers Player. "They get the ball down and pass it about.

"I think it'll be similar to what we faced last weekend against Huddersfield, they like to play it out from the back.

"They've obviously come up from League One last year and will be on a bit of a high so it will be a tough place to go.

"Personally I've never played there so it is another ground to tick off in the football league.

"They'll have the home backing but you've just got to try and play your football and stamp your game on them, try and get the first goal and if you can do that then you've always got a good chance of winning."

Tickets for Saturday will be on sale at Ewood until 4pm. Tickets will be on sale on the day of the game, cash only from the turnstiles. Prices are £22 for Adults and £12 Concessions.

Rovers Player will be providing full match commentary from the Goldsands Stadium from 2.45pm.
