Benno aiming to find goalscoring touch

The midfielder has a good recent record in front of goal against Preston and Wigan

Elliott Bennett can't wait to get back into the groove when Rovers take on near neighbours Preston North End this weekend.

It's the first of a three-game week, with another local trip to Wigan Athletic following quickly on Wednesday night at the DW Stadium.
 
The 29-year-old has scored in his last outings against both opponents and is eager to continue his fine form against the pair by bagging his first goal of the season - at least.
 
“We have games to look forward to. The rivalry is there with Preston with them being close by and we have a recent history with Wigan with all that went on last season at the top of League One," Benno began when speaking to iFollow Rovers.
 
“I scored the last time I played against Preston and Wigan, but it’s worth remembering I also got sent off against Wigan, so we won’t mention too much about that!
 
“If I can help the team by scoring again then I’ll do what I can wherever I play. I’m yet to play in goal after Richie took that away from me, and centre half. Although I don’t fancy playing at centre back to be honest!"
 
And whilst it's been frustrating for the fans to go two weeks without a Rovers game due to the international break, it's been just as irritating for Bennett!
 
He added with a smile: “I don’t like breaks. I want to play games as a break means Chris Rush [Head of Athletic Performance] is back on the scene at the training ground!
 
“Give me games over training with Rushy any day of the week!"
