Elliott Bennett says the team are itching to get back to winning ways later this week at Ewood Park and believes the spirit will help the team through.

For the first time in over a year, Rovers suffered a defeat on home turf in the league as Sheffield United gained all three points the last time we took to the field at Ewood.
But as one run ends, another one can begin and that's the aim when another Yorkshire side in Leeds United visit this weekend.
And Bennett feels that he's not the only one who's ready to get back out on the pitch following the two week break from matches due to the international schedule.
“What comes out a lot is the spirit. Everyone is working hard for the club and the manager," Bennett began to iFollow Rovers.
“If we get beat and something doesn’t go our way, everyone can walk into the dressing room knowing we’ve given our all and be able to look each other in the eye.
“When you have that in the group it’s fantastic and you want to keep hold of. The manager as a person is hardworking and honest and we’re carrying that mentality onto the pitch.
“The home record we’ve had was unbelievable. It was going to come to an end at some point, even though we didn’t want it to," he reflected.
“It wasn’t a defeat where we came in and asked questions, claiming someone didn’t do this or that. It wasn’t for the lack of trying, we just didn’t click into gear that night.
"The test now is to make sure we maintain the standards that we have set at home over the last year and we have that chance on Saturday."
