Elliott Bennett wants to reward the Rovers fans for their excellent support with a promotion party come the end of the season.

Benno gave a totally honest assessment of the Rovers faithful recently, and once more was quick to praise them after a second consecutive away day sell-out at AFC Wimbledon on a chilly night in south London.
There were 778 Rovers who made the journey down there on the bitterly cold evening, just a few days after just under 3,000 of you took the road and rail to Walsall.
And Elliott was amazed by another excellent turnout at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.
“You don’t have a football club without fans," he began when talking to reporters after the game.
"To travel down on a Tuesday night, freezing cold is exceptional. They have been fantastic all season and we’ll need them for the last 11 games. Hopefully at the end of that we can reward them with a promotion.
“You’re there to be shot at," he added when discussing Rovers' charge at the top of the table.
"We’ve not been getting carried away. Going four clear won’t mean anything if you lose the next three games. Our only focus is on Wigan and then after that we’ll look to the next one."
Can Rovers make it five wins on the spin when Wigan come to Ewood Park on Sunday for the mouthwatering top-of-the-table battle? Come and see for yourself! Ticket remain for the game and you can purchase yours by clicking here.
