It's a reunion for Rovers star Harrison Reed on Saturday as old club Norwich City make the long trip from Norfolk to Ewood Park.

Reed's been a revelation at Rovers since arriving on a season-long loan deal from Southampton in the summer, and enjoyed plenty of football last term during a similar spell with the Canaries.
 
The 23-year-old appeared 43 times in all competitions for Norwich and is expecting a tricky clash when he and Rovers come up against his old boss and former team-mates.
 
“It’ll be a tough game as they are second in the league and are in good form," the number four told iFollow Rovers ahead of the game.
 
"The three points will give us a nice boost going into the Christmas period and will also give us confidence going into two big games against Leeds and then Sheffield United.
 
“It’s a new thing for me to play against a former side. It’s not something I’ve ever done, and I will be treating it as any other game. But with it being an old team, it will mean a bit more.
 
“I loved my time at Norwich last season and learned a lot from the experience. It was my first real taste of senior football week in, week out.
 
“I learnt a lot about myself there and went back to Southampton in the summer a different player."
 
And Harrison is thrilled with how things are going now he is a Rover, where his performances instantly made him a firm favourite with the supporters.
 
“I love it here with the lads and we’re unlucky to be five points off the play-offs," he added.
 
"We have a tough period coming up and we’ll see where we are when we come out the other side.
 
“It’s gone a little bit better than I’d have expected. I’m looking forward to helping the team more. 
 
“I had to bide my time a little bit. I listen to the instructions from the manager and look to implement that when I go on the pitch.
 
“The manager has been exceptional. I’ve really taken to him and I understand he’s a really caring guy. He gives me the freedom, and that’s what every player needs. I play with confidence under him."
