Rovers Under-23s get their Premier League 2 campaign underway at home to Wolves this Monday night.

The season opener will take place at Ewood Park - the venue for three PL2 games this season - kick-off 7pm.

Damien Johnson's side enjoyed a successful pre-season, beating AFC Darwen 5-0 and Ramsbottom United 4-1, before drawing 1-1 with Marine AFC in their final friendly.

Summer signing Joe Nuttall has been the standout performer, netting six goals in the three warm-up games.

The young striker is expected to be named in the squad along with fellow new recruits, goalkeeping duo Charlie Albinson and Aaron Dillon, who officially joined the club yesterday.

Rovers finished fifth in last season's competition, whilst Wolves ended the campaign bottom of the Division 2 table. 

Admission for tonight's game is free for season ticket holders or £3 for adults and £1 for concessions. It is pay on the gate in the lower tier of the Jack Walker Stand.
