Rovers midfielder Corry Evans is aiming to go on a run between now and the end of the campaign without picking up another niggle.

Evans' season had been a stop-start one, but he made his comeback against Plymouth at the weekend after being out of action since limping off in the FA Cup defeat against former club Hull City last month.
 
And now he's back in the squad, he wants to be there to stay, admitting it's been a frustrating time for him.
 
“I took a couple of knocks but I feel fit and healthy now," the Northern Ireland international told iFollow Rovers after the game.
 
"Hopefully I can build my fitness up and help the team win as many games as possible between now and the end of the season.
 
“It’s been a frustrating year for me with injuries. Hopefully I’ll remain fit, strong, healthy and kick on now."
 
And Evans concluded by confessing that it's crucial that Rovers get back on track as soon as possible.
 
But he knows Oldham will be tricky customers at Ewood Park next week.
 
“We need to be wary of Oldham. They played well against us earlier in the season and we need to get the three points to get another run going. We’re well up for the fight."
