It's an international break for the majority of Rovers' first team squad, but for midfielder Corry Evans it's business as usual.

The Northern Ireland international missed out on the draw against Rotherham United last time out due to suspension.
 
But it's expected that the number 29 will earn cap number 51 for his country when Northern Ireland take on the Republic of Ireland tomorrow night in Dublin.
 
And speaking about his form for his club, boss Tony Mowbray has been thrilled with what he's seen from the 28-year-old.
 
“Huge credit to Corry. When I think back to when I first arrived he never played any games in the Championship under me when I first arrived at the club," the boss recollected to iFollow Rovers.
 
“Like quite a few of the other players, he knuckled down and helped us to promotion last season.
 
“He’s carried that on and has been a real positive for us who has been crucial for us this season in particular."
 
And the boss has added that he's keen to keep hold of Evans, who has been a key cog in Rovers' excellent start back in the Championship.
 
“We’re trying to discuss contracts with players who we want to move forward with and Corry fits into that equation," Tony revealed.
 
"He needs to fit into that structure and I’m hopeful we can announce something in the next few weeks.
 
“Since I have been here, aside from those first 15 games where he wasn’t involved, he’s been top class."
