Ready to play my part

Rovers new boy Marcus Antonsson hopes to make his debut this Saturday against Bradford.

The Swedish striker had no involvement last weekend against Doncaster having only put pen-to-paper on a season-long loan from Leeds United the day before.

But having trained with his new team-mates all week, the 26-year-old is ready to be involved if called upon.

"Last week I talked with the gaffer about what we were going to do and we thought it wasn't right to have just one training session and come straight into the game," said Antonsson.

"It is important to prepare well for the game, so now I've had one week to build a relationship with the other players and I think that was the best way to do it.

"My goal is to play, of course you want to play every game, score goals and work hard for your team-mates, but I need to earn the trust of the manager and then perform when I'm playing.

"I feel ready to go straight into the team now if the gaffer wants me to.

"We are looking forward to the game and I think we are prepared for the weekend."

Tickets for the match at Bradford City have now gone off sale at Ewood Park.

Fans who haven't yet purchased their tickets can get them from the Northern Commercials Stadium on the day of the game.

Matchday prices are £25 Adults, £15 Seniors 60+, £15 Students (must produce valid ID), £10 for Under 16s and £5 for Under 11s with at least one full paying adult.
