Rovers have their destiny in their own hands as things stand, but with nine games remaining and the chasing pack still sticking close behind his table-toppers, boss Tony Mowbray still things there will be plenty of twists and turns to come.

Shrewsbury, Wigan and now Rovers have had long stints at the summit of the third tier this term and despite sitting at the top, Mowbray has a feeling there are still ups and downs to come for each team fighting for the title.

With postponements against Gillingham - due to the weather - and Doncaster - thanks to five international call ups, Rovers will have a game in hand on current second placed Shrewsbury by the time Bradford visit Ewood Park on Thursday 29th March.

So, how big a physcological advantage would that have on the side?

"I don’t see the Doncaster postponement being a big issue for us," the boss said when asked the question.
“There will be lots of times in the next six or seven weeks where teams will be playing games and we’ll be sitting at home on the sofa. That’s alright as we can prepare for each game with no excuses, knowing what’s coming and having rest.
“It’s fallen alright for us, we know our games and have our points in the bag. It should be an exciting next six weeks. Each game is an event and we have to focus on that."
