Rovers' development squad return to action this Friday afternoon when they take on Swansea City.
Damien Johnson's side will look to start the new year in the same fashion as they ended 2016 after their 3-1 away win at Norwich City last month.
But the Premier League 2 encounter at the Rovers' Academy won't be an easy match against a Swans side riding high at the top of the division 2 table, having won their last seven league matches.
And when the two sides met in the corresponding fixture back in September it was Swansea who took the honours with a narrow 2-1 win.
Matty Platt fired Rovers in front but the home side responded with goals from George Byers and Daniel James to claim the points.
Kick-off at the Academy this afternoon is at 1.00pm. All supporters are welcome.
