Rovers youngster Lewis Travis is hoping to play a part in the final game of the season at home to Oxford United after coming off the bench at Charlton.

It was Travis' first outing in Tony Mowbray's side since early February when he appeared in the second half at The Valley as a substitute.

And the 20-year-old scouser is desperate for more opportunities in the near future for Mowbray's men.

“It’s always good to get first team football. It’s been a while but always good to get a run-out," the number 35 told reporters after the game.

“We didn’t get that luck at Charlton. The ball never fell our way at the right moment. We’re all competitive and were desperate to win at the weekend, and that’s what has probably been a reason for us getting promoted this season.
“I want to play for the first team, but it’s been great to play a part in the Under-23s’ title win and a small part in the first team’s promotion back to the Championship.
“It’s been a great season for me and the aim now is to play regular first team football. I’m pleased to see I’m in the gaffer’s mind.
“There should be a cracking atmosphere at Ewood Park next week against Oxford and I'm hoping to play a part in it."
