Rovers manager Tony Mowbray says the possibility of promotion hasn't changed his side's preparations ahead of Tuesday's trip to Doncaster.

With just three games remaining, the Blues can seal a return to the Championship by matching or bettering Shrewsbury's result against Peterborough tomorrow night.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the boss says it's been business as usual around the Senior Training Centre, with players and staff alike focused on finishing the campaign strongly.

“I see three games to go and an opportunity to win three matches," he said.

"The first one is Doncaster on Tuesday, so we’ll prepare the lads and go for three points.

"If the result is getting out of this league then it will be a fantastic achievement. Let’s try to finish strongly and stay focused.

"We’ve been on a great run and want to finish it off. 

“The focus at this moment is on going to Doncaster and putting in a positive performance to get a result.

They’ve got a decent home record and beat us at Ewood earlier in the season, so we need to approach it the right way.

"We’ll go there and hopefully give a big performance. For the manager, it’s easy. It’s the players who have to put the boots on and go out there to get the job done.

"They know their jobs and will work hard, let’s see where it takes us. Over the course of 46 games, you’ll accumulate the points you deserve."

Mowbray was also asked to provide an update on his squad ahead of the game, and had good news, saying: “Injury-wise, no real problems.

"Ryan Nyambe is back in training and building his fitness, and everyone else is fine."
