Rams test for development squad

16 February 2016

Rovers Under-21s return to action this Tuesday evening when they take on Derby County at the iPro Stadium.

Damien Johnson's side will be eager to get back to winning ways after narrowly losing their last two league and cup outings.

The development squad face a Rams side currently top of Barclays Under-21 Premier League Division two, whilst Rovers are 9th. But with the blue and whites having as many as five games in hand on the teams around them there are plenty of opportunities for them to close the gap on those above.

The two sides met at Leigh Sports Village on the opening day of this season, with the visitors claiming a slender 1-0 win thanks to a second half goal from Ethan Wassall.

With the first team action against Fulham at Ewood this evening, no first team players are likely to be involved in tonight's Under-21 game.

Kick-off at the iPro Stadium is at 7.00pm.
