Rovers returner Marcus Antonsson claims the spirit in the squad is one of the best he's been involved with in his career

Marcus made his comeback from injury against Bury on Monday night after missing the last couple of months after picking up an ankle problem against Scunthorpe at Ewood Park in late December.
 
And speaking after the recent win against the Shakers, which put Rovers top of the league, the Swede beamed about the togetherness in the squad.
 
“Everyone has seen what happens to our confidence when we win back-to-back games," the 26-year-old said. "It’s vital to do that when there are 13 games to go. We feel really confident at the moment.
 
“I think we have a good group of lads. We’re great friends and have real togetherness. We have two important games coming up and we want an even stronger position after coming through them.
 
“It’s one of the best groups I’ve been involved in. It’s a really special bunch here.
 
“If I made a mistake, the lads would push you on. We help each other and we dig in. We know we’re good enough and we scored two good goals in the second half to win the game."
 
And looking ahead to the weekend trip to Walsall, Marcus says the side shouldn't take their opponents for granted.
 
“It’s always different to play a team at your ground and then going to play them away so soon after. Every game is hard, but we’re well prepared for them.
 
“I want to start, we have good competition and everyone will be needed. I feel ready and I’m very happy to be back from injury now."
