Elliott Bennett says he excited to see what the next 11 games holds for Rovers, and has hailed the influence of his manager Tony Mowbray.

A key cog in the well-oiled Rovers machine, Bennett ended his goal drought in the freezing cold at AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday night.
 
And speaking after the game, the versatile midfielder, who has played in a variety of positions for the team this season, belives the club's fortunes have been completely turned around under the leadership of the boss.
 
“A massive part of our run is the manager to be honest," he told reporters after the game. "He’s come in and changed the mindset of the group, the demands he puts on each player and what he won’t accept is players not trying.
 
“We’re all excited - you have to be in the position we’re in. But we’re not taking anything for granted. We’ve put a lot of hard work into catching up after our poor start to the season and we need to keep it rolling now."
 
And after four wins on the spin and the team now four points ahead of the chasing pack at the top of the table, Elliott insists things couldn't be going better at Rovers at the moment.
 
“Confidence is really high. We need to keep training hard and be ready for the next game when it comes.
 
“We have fantastic quality at the top end of the pitch, as you can see with Bradley’s two goals, and even though Danny’s not scored, he’s set one up and led the line really well tonight."
