While the talent in the current Rovers squad is clear for all to see, manager Tony Mowbray believes his players' "human traits" have set them apart this season.

The Blues are heading into the final three games of the campaign, with promotion within touching distance and achievable as early as Tuesday night.

Speaking ahead of the trip to Doncaster, Mowbray heaped praise on his squad, and believes their off-field qualities have been as important as their performances on matchday.

“The players deserve great credit for taking pride in their performance levels and working hard," he said.

"The spirit in the dressing room is massive and that’s so important but we still have a job to do.

“We’ve got a good blend of youth and experience. First and foremost, we’ve got some good guys who understand that hard work and honesty will take you a long way.

"Having togetherness and commitment to the cause is important and all of those human traits which they bring to training every day are vital.

"On top of that, they have to have talent; if you’re a defender you need bravery, if you’re an attacker you need creativity.

"All of those things roll into one and give you a good football team, and we’ve shown that’s what we are.

“There’s a lot of pride here; we don’t want to lose games and you have to have that in your DNA.

"At this moment, we want to win all three of our remaining games and see where it takes us."
