Tony Mowbray says his players will go to Charlton with the aim of not turning the game into a "damp squib" with promotion already sealed.

Rovers could still win the title, should they win both games and Wigan slip up, but Championship football was confirmed earlier in the week at Doncaster.

And Mowbray says the aim is six points from a possible six with a journey to the capital on Saturday followed up with a final run out at Ewood in the 2017-18 campaign when Oxford visit East Lancashire.

“We’ll have the team ready to win those next two games. We have players who care, who fight and work really hard," the boss revealed to iFollow Rovers on Friday morning.

“Huge credit to the players who have the desire not to lose and it’s been a bit like an army going into battle this season. We’ve had a fantastic run and we’ll try to finish the campaign strongly.

“The players have to focus and make sure the game doesn’t become a damp squib against a good side who have had a bit of a resurgence under Lee Bowyer and have won five out of their last seven or eight games."

A dangerous opponent, so what's the plan, boss?

“We’ll go there looking to ask questions of them," Tony added. "They have the challenge and be focussed on reaching the play-offs so we need to go there, be professional and look to get a positive result for our fans."
