Tony Mowbray believes AFC Wimbledon will be another tough test for his side when the two teams go head-to-head at Ewood Park tomorrow.

Rovers go into the game off the back of a four match winning run having defeated Bradford City, MK Dons, Rochdale and Scunthorpe United.

But the manager knows there are no easy games in this division and anticipates the visiting Dons to be up for the battle.

"It will be tough as I think they have got a bit of everything," said the Rovers boss.

"I think they can play, they can pass from the back, they are very dynamic, they are physical, strong and athletic, good on set-plays. They are a dangerous team.

"They are an intense team and the physical side of the game is something that they relish. So we have to be ready for that.

"We have to impose our own qualities on them. We are at home, we should be on the front foot and hopefully we'll have enough quality in the team to go and get the three points."
