Corry Evans can see some similarities between Rovers this season and his former club Hull City.
The Northern Ireland international was part of the Hull squad that claimed promotion in 2012/13 and believes the team spirit at his current club can drive them on to a similar feat.
Evans admits Rovers are a much more attacking team in contrast to the Tigers, and with what he believes is the best front two in the league, the midfielder is hopeful that they can emulate them and clinch a return to the top flight.
"I think we are probably a bit more attacking than the Hull team I played with," said Evans.
"We used to play with five at the back and we used to get a lead and just see it out and win our games that way.
"Whereas here, we've got Rudy and Jordan up front who are two of the best goalscorers in this league at the minute. And we know that if we are not really playing that well they can come up with the goods and help us out.
"We've also got the likes of Ben Marshall, who has been on fire this year. He is chipping in with the goals as well.
"Team spirit-wise it is probably similar to Hull. We've got a good set of lads, everyone gets on with each other and I think it showed on Saturday.
"We've been 1-0 down a few times now and we've come back and managed to win the game and that is down to team spirit."
Evans and Rovers are in action at Middlesbrough this afternoon. Tickets will be on sale to Rovers fans from the Riverside, cash only from the South Stand ticket office next to the away turnstiles from 1.30pm. Ticket prices are £31 for Adults, £23 for over 65s and £16 for Under-18s.
