After two tough away games, Bradley Dack says he can't wait to play at Ewood again tomorrow, as Rovers prepare to take on Peterborough.

The Blues travelled over 800 miles last week for matches against Gillingham and Bristol Rovers, drawing on both occasions.

With just four games to go, Rovers are five points above third-placed Shrewsbury and can take a big step towards promotion with victory on home soil on Thursday.

“We’re all really looking forward to it," Dack told iFollow.

"We’ve got two big home games left against Peterborough tomorrow and Oxford on the final day.

"The last two away games have been tough, the pitch wasn’t great at Gillingham and they put a lot of men behind the ball but took a point.

"At Bristol Rovers, the late goal was a tough one to take, but that’s football.

"We’ve just got to make sure we pick ourselves up; coming back to Ewood is nice, we haven’t lost at home since October so we’re excited for the game."

Rovers made a slow start to the season but have now lost just once in 31 games, with Ewood becoming something of a fortress for Mowbray's men.

Asked if it's become easier to play at home as the season has gone on, Dack added: “Yeah, I think so.

"I’ve said before that I don’t think we adapted to the league as quickly as we expected to, we had some mixed results at the start but now it’s really enjoyable.

“We’re five points ahead of Shrewsbury with four games to go and that’s quite a big gap.

"We have to make sure we capitalise on that and put them to bed now.”
