He's had a fine start to the 2018-19 campaign and Corry Evans admits he's pleased with how the season is panning out.

Evans has been a regular for both club and country this term, playing a key role in Rovers' rise to just outside the play-off places in the Championship.

And the 28-year-old is pleased with his own personal displays, but is modest in his assessment.

“My form has been alright. It’s nice to be back in the Championship and I think we’ve done okay so far," he said.

“I’m happy to keep ticking the games over. I like to keep going and keep the fitness up. When I stop it hinders me.

"Keeping myself ticked over in the summer really helped me and as far as I’m concerned I want the games to continue."

On the team, Evans adds there have been highs and lows so far in the campaign, but believes the strength in depth - particularly in midfield - is pushing every player to the absolute limit.

“It’s difficult to come in after games with draws. Thinking back, Villa was disappointing to only draw in the last minute and Ipswich away was another one," the Northern Ireland international recollected.

“We’re disappointed not to have more points. In hindsight, we look at that Villa game and the match against Nottingham Forest and feel we should have won both games.

“We have lots of good, healthy competition in the squad. We push each other on. Harrison [Reed] has done fantastic and I feel he gives us a good balance when he plays on the right."
