Rovers playmaker Jack Payne says he can't wait to play in front of over 25,000 supporters when old club Oxford United visit Ewood Park on Saturday.

A loan signing in January, Payne's played his part in a Rovers promotion back to the Championship, registering plenty of assists since joining from Huddersfield.

And looking back and looking ahead, Jack admits he's had a brilliant time at Ewood and wants to end the campaign on a high in front of the supporters.

“It’s been a really enjoyable season for me, starting at Oxford, making my way to Blackburn and achieving promotion." the number 19 told reporters.

“Coming here to be part of a squad that has won most games since I have been here has been brilliant.
“The game at Doncaster was brilliant and we’ve enjoyed ourselves since then, apart from the game of Charlton of course. These sort of games are what you live for," he added when looking ahead to Saturday's game.
"It should be a great day on the final game of the season, especially with all our supporters there. It’ll be a great occasion with players, staff and fans all coming together to celebrate a great season.
“It’s not often in football you can go into games with a little bit less pressure on you, but we still want to get the win to see the summer in and send the fans off on a high. All the lads will enjoy it and relish the moment.
“It’s a massive club, there is no doubt about that. We’re pleased that we’ve repaid the fans and hopefully they can cheer us on to three points."
