Rovers' Under-23s are back in action this Friday afternoon when they travel to take on Reading.

Damien Johnson's young hopefuls will be eager to continue their excellent start to the campaign following Monday's 5-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Ewood Park.

Joe Nuttall grabbed a hat-trick, whilst Joe Rankin-Costello and Lewis Hardcastle were also on the scoresheet in an impressive opening day display.

In contrast, today's opponents were on the end of a heavy loss in their first outing as they fell to a 4-0 away defeat at Southampton. So they'll be keen to put that result behind them later today.

Kick-off at Hogwood Park is at 1pm, fans should note that this game will be played behind closed doors.
