We all have our favourites ... but who has been Rovers’ standout performer this season?

Well, this is how we find out - by inviting fans to vote for their 2017-18 Player of the Year.

As always, there have been some impressive individual contributions throughout the campaign.

Goalkeeper David Raya has been an ever-present between the sticks, keeping a league-high 14 clean sheets, which has seen the Spaniard named in the League One Team of the Season.

Last season's winner, Derrick Williams, who is the only outfield player to have played every minute of every league game, has once again been a model of consistency at left-back, whilst Ryan Nyambe continues to grow into the right-back role.

Charlie Mulgrew, who has also been named in the Team of the Season, has skippered Rovers to the top of the table, leading by example with a string of outstanding defensive displays, whilst also contributing 12 league goals at the other end of the pitch!

Paul Downing has enjoyed a memorable maiden campaign at Ewood Park, keeping clean sheets in his first five fixtures, whilst being on the losing side only once in his 27 Rovers appearances in all competitions.

Elliott Bennett has shown incredible passion and versatility, playing in numerous positions and giving his all for the shirt, whilst warrior Richie Smallwood has started every league game and endeared himself to the supporters with his tough-tackling, all-action, commitment to the cause - not to mention a memorable late winner at Fleetwood.

In the attacking areas, fans favourite Bradley Dack, who has also been named in the Team of the Season and is one of just three players shortlisted for the League One Player of the Year award, has weighed in with some moments of magic, 16 league goals and countless assists in a dream debut season at Ewood Park.

Danny Graham has led the line superbly all season and is hot on Dack's heels in the scoring stakes, having netted 15 goals in all competitions, whilst also setting up his fair share.

Finally, fellow forward Adam Armstrong has made an immediate impact since signing on loan from Newcastle at the start of the year, netting nine goals in as many games, whilst also picking up the February Player of the Month prize.   

Selection won't be easy, so get your thinking caps on and let us know your choice by voting for your favourite player below:

Voting will close on Tuesday May 1st, with the winner presented with the prestigious trophy at our final home game of the season against Oxford United on Saturday May 5th.
