Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has called on his players to keep going, saying they should have "nothing to fear" during the final 10 league games of 2017/18.

The Blues are five points clear at the top of the League One table - although other sides have games in hand - and drew 2-2 against fellow promotion hopefuls Wigan on Sunday.

Speaking after the game, Mowbray is confident that the desire and determination running through the squad will stand his side in good stead for the run-in.

"I thought our desire to win was massive against Wigan and we should have got all three points," he told iFollow.

“It was a great run and finish from [Adam] Armstrong for the first goal and a great reverse pass from Brad [Dack] for Elliott Bennett's goal.

"Elliott came in off the left and finished well for the second, but it doesn’t mean very much now.

“We just have to win as many as we can, pick up as many points as we can and keep going.

"When it was a battle against Wigan we were up for the battle and when it was about quality we had that too.

"If we show that between now and the end of the season we should have nothing to fear.”

Rovers are next in action when Blackpool make the short trip to Ewood Park on Saturday 10th March.
