Grant Hanley believes the strength in depth in the squad can only help to drive the team on to bigger and better things.
The Rovers captain feels competition for places has never been stronger than it is right now and it can only serve to bring the best out of the players.
"I wouldn't have it any other way, that is the way it should be," said the defender.
"The competition for places brings the best out of everybody and if you aren't fighting for your shirt you aren't on top of your game.
"At the end of the day that is the way it should be, we've competition all over the pitch now which is probably why we are doing so well."
Hanley and Rovers are back in action later today when they travel to take on Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium.
Tickets for the match be available from the Brighton ticket office but supporters should note that there is a further £1.50 booking fee for all matchday purchases. Prices are £30 for Adults, £22 for Over 65s, £15 for Under 18s and £8 for Under 10s.
