Rovers midfielder Corry Evans returns to familiar territory this weekend when Tony Mowbray's side head to Hull, but the Northern Ireland man doubts there will be much of a reunion.

Evans appeared close to 100 times for the Tigers during his two years at the club after originally arriving on Humberside on a loan deal from Manchester United back in 2011.
 
Corry had success at Hull, too. He played his part in their promotion to the Premier League before departing to link up with Rovers, just a day after Tom Cairney made the same move.
 
And looking back, the 28-year-old has fond memories of his time at the KCOM Stadium.
 
“I was a young boy when I was at Hull. It must be five or six years ago now so it’s been quite a while," he said ahead of the trip.
 
“I don’t think there are any players in their squad still there from my time. There might be a few member of staff remaining. All the reporters are still the same - they seem to hang around a bit!
 
“Tom and myself came that year. I had good times at Hull though and I’m looking forward to going back."
 
And on the move to Rovers in 2013, Evans admits he has "no regrets" at swapping Premier League football for a move to East Lancashire.
 
“I remember we had just got promoted to the Premier League at Hull and I just wanted to play regular football to be honest," he added. "I had a young family and I wanted to move closer to home, closer to this way. 
 
“To be playing regular football, I felt the move to Rovers would be beneficial. I’ve played a lot of games since then and I have no regrets about making the move."
 

Don't forget, Rovers are back in league action on Saturday at Hull City. You can back the lads by purchasing your tickets here.
