Elliott Bennett 'warmed up' for today's game by showing his support to the Witton Park bonfire.

The annual charity bonfire and firework display takes place at Witton Country Park tonight from 7.30pm.

All monies raised will be donated to local worthy causes.

The Rovers midfielder was invited to lend a helping hand by Elton Ashworth, Chairman of the Blackburn Round Table, who helped to construct the impressive structure.

Elton is also Managing Director of Watson Ramsbottom Solicitors, who teamed up with the club at the start of the season as Rovers' new back-of-shirt sponsor.

Benno was also on hand at the Senior Training Centre back in July to officially unveil the partnership with the leading Lancashire legal firm, who have offices in Blackburn, Darwen, Great Harwood and Accrington. 

Rovers fans are reminded that the club will be staging its own fireworks display following today's Ewood encounter against Queens Park Rangers.

To celebrate the club's 143rd birthday and Diwali - the Hindu Festival of Lights - Rovers will stage a lights show on the LED advertising boards at 5pm, followed by a fantastic fireworks display from behind the Riverside Stand at 5.15pm.

Tickets, which start from just £21 for adults, £15 for concessions, £7 for Under-18s and £5 for Under-12s, are available from the Roverstore at Ewood Park, online at or by calling the Ticket Office on 01254 372000.
