Gary Bowyer has called for a repeat performance on and off the pitch when Rovers take on Bolton Wanderers tomorrow.

The Rovers manager was delighted with the support his side received in their 1-0 win over Reading at the Madejski Stadium and would love more of the same this weekend at the Reebok.

More than 2200 tickets have been sold for the clash, with just some 400 tickets remaining.

"We had a fantastic following last week from the supporters and it was much appreciated," said Bowyer. "We know that this week there is going to be an even bigger following there.

"It is up to the supporters to lend their voice again, but it is up to us to put a performance on the pitch for something to shout about."

Rovers closed the gap to the top six to just four points with the victory over Reading, Craig Conway's first goal for the club settling a tight affair.

"There weren't many people that gave us much a chance going there because of the fine form Reading were in," added the Rovers boss.

"Especially because of their last couple of home games where they had scored seven and five.

"We were aware of the challenge but I thought we went about it well, got the goal and defended magnificently from front to back. It was a fantastic effort.

"We are willing the supporters to keep that wonderful backing that we've had on the road. It is up to us to give them something to cheer about."

Tickets for Saturday's game go off sale at Ewood at 5.30pm this Friday, after that they'll be available from the Reebok, cash only from turnstiles G at the South Stand upper tier.

Prices are £33 for Adults, £23 Seniors/Under-23s and £12 for Under-18s.
