Former Rovers player Simon Grayson will be back at Ewood Park on Thursday night when he takes his place in the away dugout - and Tony Mowbray says the Bradford boss will be desperate to get one over his former employers.
Grayson has past and present links to Rovers, having appeared 40 times in blue and white between 1999 and 2002, whilst son Joe is a regular in the backline in Damien Johnson's Development Squad.
Still based locally to Blackburn, Grayson Snr is a regular at the Lancashire FA HQ when Rovers' Under-23s play to watch Joe take to the field.
Both Grayson and Mowbray are good friends, and Tony is eager to make sure he won't have a noisy neighbour on Thursday evening!
“Training has surprisingly been really intense," the boss added. "I say surprisingly because sometimes it’s difficult to keep the group motivated when we haven’t had a game in a while. The group was restricted with five of them away on international duty.
Rovers are next in action on Thursday 29th March against Bradford City. Kick-off against the Bantams is at 7.45pm, and tickets can be purchased by clicking here.
