More of the same Markus

30 September 2014

Gary Bowyer has called on Markus Olsson to maintain his current run of form.

The Rovers boss believes the full back is playing the best football of his career after continuing this season the way he ended the last.

Deputising for the injured Tommy Spurr, Olsson ended the last campaign impressively, but this season he has really hit the heights with several man-of-the-match performances, making the left back slot his own.

"He is playing the best football of his career," said Bowyer. "We spoke and I asked him if it's the best form he's ever been in and he agreed.

"He's thoroughly enjoying his football and I think you can see that.

"He's fantastic going forward as well and his delivery for the first goal on Saturday was magnificent, it just told everybody in the box to come and head this to score and that is exactly what the big man Rudy did.

"So he's playing brilliant is Markus and long may that continue."

Olsson and Rovers are back in action this evening when Rovers travel to the New York Stadium to take on Rotherham United.

Tickets for tonight's match will go off sale at Ewood Park at 3.30pm on the day of the game. Advanced prices are £23 for Adults, £13 for Over 60s and Students, £8 for 13-17 year-olds and £6 for Under-12s.

Fans should note that whilst tickets will be on sale at Rotherham there is a £2 increase in prices.
