It's been two weeks without a game for Rovers, but the team will have been boosted by heading into the international break with a win.

The most recent three-point haul came against Bolton Wanderers back at the start of this month, with Bradley Dack's goal being the difference on the day.
Charlie Mulgrew played his part in the victory as he helped the team to a fifth clean sheet of the season, and now the skipper is eager for Rovers to show consistency and to put a run of wins together.
“It’s a solid start, but we can do better. From where we have came from to where we are now, we can be pleased," Mulgrew told iFollow Rovers.
“But naturally you always want to improve, always strive for better, and we want a lot of big performances from now until the end of the season.
“We’ve shown different parts of our game this season. We’ve ground out 1-0 wins against the likes of Bolton and Hull, but we’ve also played some lovely football and not got the results we deserved.
“Hopefully we can put it all together and go on a right good run."
Whilst Dack gets the headlines thanks to his goalscoring exploits, the captain is also keen to pay tribute to the team as a whole following just two defeats from the opening 12 league games.
“Bradley’s a great guy who is a huge player for us, but credit has to go to a lot of other players as well," Mulgrew added.
"Elliott Bennett has put a great shift in, as he does every week. Harrison Reed played at right wing back against Bolton in the second half, Darragh [Lenihan] has been excellent and is a real warrior.
“Everyone’s putting a shift in, I could go through all the lads. Del [Williams] Amari’i Bell, DG [Danny Graham], Richie [Smallwood], Corry Evans.
"We’ve out in a real team display this season and we have players who can make the difference in the final third, like Dacky."

Rovers return to action this weekend when Leeds United make the trip to Ewood Park. You can back the lads by purchasing your tickets here.
