Rovers can confirm our FA Youth Cup third round tie against Gillingham will be played on Wednesday 5th December, kick-off 7pm.

Ewood Park is the venue for the Gills' long trip to East Lancashire, with the Kent side beating AFC Wimbledon away in round one before breezing past Cheltenham Town in the last round, hammering the Robins 4-0 away from home.

Rovers make their bow in the competition this season and will look to replicate their excellent run in the tournament from last season - at the very least.

Whilst things didn't quite go to plan in the league, the FA Youth Cup was a welcome distraction for Billy Barr's side, with the young Blues reaching the quarter-final stage of the competition, eventually losing to Lancashire rivals Blackpool.

Tickets for supporters are priced at £4 for adults and £2 for concessions.

Supporters will be housed in the Jack Walker Lower for the game.
