Make the most of the international break

Whilst Elliott Bennett would have preferred to have had a match this weekend, he hopes that the work that they put in on the training ground will pay dividends between now and the end of the season.

Because of the international matches taking place, Rovers finally have a break from the gruelling schedule that saw them play seven games in just 22 days.

The Rovers midfielder feels that the team have been playing well under new boss Tony Mowbray, and believes they can continue to take on his methods to ensure a successful end to the campaign.

"To be honest without winning as many as we should have done, we have been playing really well and I think there has been some really positive signs," said Bennett.

"So we just wanted to continue that really, but we've got the international break now so we've got a lot of time to work on things on the training ground.

"We haven't really had that much time with the manager because obviously the games have been coming thick and fast, but we'll use this time now to really implement what he wants on a matchday.

"He has a very clear way of the way he wants his teams to play and we have to buy into that because if you don't then you don't play it is as simple as that.

"It has been a big change since he first came in and hopefully that can continue and we can work hard on the training ground over the next week or so and really push forward again for the last eight games."

Roves and Bennett are back in action after the international break when they travel to take on Brighton & Hove Albion.

Away tickets are selling well for the game on the south coast, and with home areas now all sold out, there will be no sales on the day at the ground, so advance purchase will be required.

Away travel is also available at £32 for Adults, £30.50 for Concessions.
