Danny Graham says upcoming home games against Northampton and Walsall could prove crucial to Rovers' promotion push, and is calling on the fans to help make Ewood Park a fortress.

Tony Mowbray's men now sit second in the standings following Saturday's victory at Fleetwood, and will look to close the gap on leaders Wigan this weekend.

Speaking ahead of the game, Graham says the Blues face a couple of tough tests and can't afford to get complacent.

“I remember how down we felt after the Oldham game before we started this run and ever since then we’ve never looked back," he said.

“We need to continue that, not get complacent and not get ahead of ourselves. We’ve got Northampton next and we’re focused on that.

“We take every game as it comes, and the objective is to win every game and get back into the Championship.

“We’ve got two home games now; we played Northampton not long ago and it was a tough game down there.

"We could have got the win there but we know it will be a tough test on Saturday.

“We can’t get complacent, it’s going to be a tough game and we’ll need to make sure we’re ready for it."

Rovers have been backed by phenomenal support both at home and on the road in 2017/18, and the striker insists the fans could play a key role in the coming weeks.

“The fans are massive for us," he added. "They got us over the line against Shrewsbury in our last home game and they’ll play a huge part between now and the end of the season.

“We’re on a great run; every away game is a sell-out and every home game the attendances are getting higher and higher, so long may that continue.

“Anyone could pop up with a goal, there are goals all over this team and the new signings look like they’ve got goals in them too.

“There’s a massive feel-good factor around the place now."
