Under-23s face Fulham tonight

18 April 2017

Rovers' development squad play their penultimate Premier League 2 match this evening when they take on Fulham at the County Ground, Leyland - kick-off 7.00pm.

Victory over West Bromwich Albion last time out means Damien Johnson's youngsters still harbour hopes of reaching the end of season promotion play-offs for the second successive season.

Rovers sit in seventh place in Division 2, two points behind fifth place West Ham United but with a game in hand on those above them.

Swansea City clinched the league title several weeks ago, whilst Wolves and Newcastle have already cemented their place in the play-offs. Tonight's opponents Fulham need just a point from their remaining two games to join them.

Rovers will be out for revenge having suffered a narrow 1-0 loss when the two sides met on the opening day of the season back in August.

A stunning 88th minute winner from Dennis Adeniran proved to be the difference between the two sides on the night at Craven Cottage.

Damien Johnson is expected to name a youthful squad for tonight's match at Leyland. Season ticket holders can see the game for free on production of their season ticket cards, whilst general admission prices are £3 for Adults and £1 Concessions.
