Rovers midfielder Elliott Bennett has hailed the team spirit in the camp against of the final 14 games of the campaign, which starts against Bury on Monday evening.

Versatile Bennett has revelled in his central midfield role of late, and admits he would play anywhere on the pitch - as long as the team benefit.
“The gaffer likes to change things up if a team has a weakness or whether we need to change formation to help win the game," Benno began. "It’s important for everyone to adapt to suit a situation on the field.
“What I will say about this group is that everyone wants to win. Everyone wants to do their bit. If the gaffer wants Danny Graham to play centre back for five minutes then he’ll do it because he wants to win and wants to help the group.
“The togetherness in the group is unbelievable. We all stick together and we all pull each other through. It’s not just about the XI, it’s about the 12 or 13 that aren’t in the team, who are massive to the group and vital for what we want to do here."
Elliott's an experienced professional, with plenty of games under his belt in a career which has taken in spells with the likes of Brighton, Norwich and Bristol City, but says even at the age of 29, he can still improve his game and add more strings to his bow.
“I’ll always give my all and aim to be the best player I can be. Wherever the boss wants me to play, I’ll play. It’s not easy because everyone has their specialities," the number 31 added.
"For me, I love playing football, I watch football and take bits from different players in different positions. If you are ever called upon to slot in, then you can implement that into your game and fill in if required."
