Tony Mowbray was pleased with the performance of youngster Harry Chapman in last night's Carabao Cup tie with Burnley.
The Rovers boss handed the 19-year-old his first start in blue and white, and despite the defeat, Mowbray felt that the on loan attacker acquitted himself well.
"I thought he worked really hard," said the manager.
"This is why he is here, he's a young boy playing against Bardsley who has over 100 games in the Premier League so it was a tough ask.
"He's got blistering pace at times and we need him to get positive and be more on the front foot believing himself a bit more.
"You do that by giving him game time and letting him hopefully make the difference in some games. I think in League One he will hurt teams at times."
Rovers have a quick turnaround with MK Dons the visitors to Ewood Park this Saturday at 3.00pm.
Tickets for the match are on open sale with prices from £20 Adults, from £13 Concessions, from £7 Juniors 12-17 and from £5 for Juniors under 12.
