Corry Evans has been pleased with the start to the season - both on a personal level and for the team.

Rovers have won two and drawn three of their opening five league fixtures and currently lie fifth in the Championship table.

Evans has played an integral part, starting every game and producing some impressive performances to boot.

On the back of last season's promotion from League One, Evans hopes both he and the team can maintain their early season momentum as the weeks progress.

"I think we've made a good start," said the 28-year-old midfielder.

"Obviously we're building on last season and we've carried that into the Championship and hopefully we can maintain it.

"I was starting to get a bit of form at the end of last season and I've carried that through.

"I managed to get a full pre-season under my belt and I'm feeling fit and strong."

Manager Tony Mowbray has strengthened the midfield area over the past week, bringing in the likes of Jack Rodwell, Harrison Reed and Ben Brereton, but Evans has welcomed the increased competition for places.

"They're good players," added the Northern Ireland international.

"The manager knew all about them, brought them in to help strengthen the squad and improve competition for places and it only helps to drive everyone else on to perform better."
Rovers will look to continue their unbeaten start to the season at Bristol City this Sunday.

Evans is expecting another tough test, but is confident the team will be well prepared for Ashton Gate encounter.

"Bristol City are a good team," added Evans.

"They're a good passing team and they play nice football.

"We'll do the work on the grass and the manager will have us set up the way he wants us to approach the game."
