Rovers' Under-23s will be out to continue their impressive start to the season when they take on Middlesbrough at Ewood Park this Monday night.

Damien Johnson's young hopefuls have a 100% start to their Premier League 2 campaign, with three wins from three.

They also knocked Wigan Athletic's first team on penalties last time out to progress through to the second round of the Lancashire FA Senior Cup so go into this evening's match full of confidence.

However, tonight's match sees Rovers face a Boro side with the same 100% record as Rovers. They are the only two teams in Division 2 to have won all three of their league outings so far, so it should be an excellent contest.

With the first team in action at Scunthorpe United on Tuesday evening, Johnson is expected to go with the same squad that has served Rovers so well to date.

Kick-off at Ewood is at 7.00pm. Season ticket holders can gain free admission on production of their season ticket card. General admission prices are £3 Adults, £1 Concessions.
