We've made Ewood our fortress

Bradley Dack is hoping Ewood Park continues to be a happy hunting ground for Rovers for another weekend at least.

Tony Mowbray's men have gone almost a year without defeat in East Lancashire in the league, with AFC Wimbledon the last team to stop Rovers getting at least a point on home turf back on Saturday 16th September 2017.

But the team will perhaps face their sternest test of that spell when Aston Villa visit our home this weekend.

Both teams will be looking to respond following away defeats before the international break and Dack says these are the games the squad look forward to.

“They are a massive club, everybody knows that," Dack says when discussing Steve Bruce's visitors.

"It's on the television as well, at Ewood, and the atmosphere should be great.

“We've made Ewood a bit of a fortress over the last year or so, so we'll obviously be looking to keep that good run at home going.

“We know it'll be a tough match. They have some good players, but so do we. I think it's a game to look forward to.

"All the lads want to play in, but the competition here tells you that everyone will have to be at their best in the lead up to the game to get picked and make sure the gaffer has some hard decisions to make."
