"We need to make it a fortress and make sure it’s a tough place for teams to come to." That's the message from Joe Nuttall as Rovers aim to continue their fine form at Ewood Park.
The 2017-18 campaign was a breakthrough one for the young forward, who was rewarded for his plethora of goals in the Under-23s with a place in the first team squad.
