Striker Danny Graham is looking forward to linking back up with the squad ahead of Rovers' return to pre-season training, which starts on Sunday.
Tony Mowbray, his staff and the players all fly out to Austria on Sunday for a week-long training camp to get their pre-season preparations underway.
Graham, who penned a fresh one-year deal with the club, will head into his 16th pre-season as a professional at the weekend.
And the 32-year-old says he is relishing this one as much as any other, despite the constant running that normally occurs for footballers at this time of year.
“I’m looking forward to getting back at it. I think we’ve had five weeks off now and every day of our life is all about football," the frontman said.
"It’s enjoyable to come in every day, have that banter and work towards those Saturdays when you get the buzz of playing in front of 15,000-20,000 supporters. I’m looking forward to coming back, but not the running!
“It’s what we’re paid to do and we’re so privileged to do what we do. We look forward to putting in the hard work over the summer.
The fixtures were revealed on Thursday morning and Graham says there is no reason why Rovers can't make it another season to remember.
“We don’t go into the league fearing anyone," he added. "We will probably be underdogs in the majority of the games but we will go there to show what we are capable of and what we’re all about."
