Boss Gary Bowyer has hailed the club's fantastic following as they prepare to face Blackpool this Saturday.

Rovers will be roared on by almost 2200 supporters at Bloomfield Road as they snapped up their full allocation of tickets for the Lancashire derby.

"It is magnificent," said Bowyer. "I've got nothing but full praise for the supporters for how they have been with us.

"The following that they gave us at Bournemouth was unbelievable to say how far that was.

"Then they backed it up with Wigan and now they have sold out this weekend. It is great for us and it gives us a boost going into that game.

"We'll have a fantastic following, it is another local derby, it is going to be passionate and we are looking to come away with a positive result."
