A date for Rovers’ rearranged Premier League 2 fixture at home to Newcastle United has now been confirmed.

The game was initially set to take place on Monday March 12th, but was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

The rescheduled fixture will now be played at the LFA County Ground in Leyland on Monday April 9th, kick-off 7pm.

Following the Newcastle fixture, Damien Johnson’s side, who are currently seven points clear at the top of the PL2 table, will have just two more matches, as follows:

  • Rovers U23s v Aston Villa U23s
    Monday April 16th
    Ewood Park
    Kick-off 7pm

  • West Bromwich Albion U23s v Rovers U23s
    Monday April 23rd
    Kidderminster Harriers FC
    Kick-off 7pm

Victory over Aston Villa at Ewood Park next month will ensure that Rovers are crowned Premier League 2 Division 2 champions.
