Rovers midfielder Lewis Travis says the support from the stands and on social media spurs him on, with the 21-year-old aiming to upset Norwich City's potential party on Saturday afternoon.

A victory for the hosts will seal their place in the top flight, but Travis says Rovers won't be heading there to watch the celebrations.

And whilst another three-point haul will benefit Rovers this term, Travis also believes a win will come in handy in the longer-term.

“Everybody in the team wants to test themselves against the best players and it’s a game we’re all looking forward to," he told iFollow Rovers ahead of the trip to Carrow Road.

“We want to win the game, we’re all competitive. We’ll go there to ruin their party.

“A win will give us lots of confidence going into next season, beating anyone in the top six, let alone a team at the top of the league like Norwich."

Travis could appear for the 30th time in the first team this term at Carrow Road, having really nailed down a starting spot at the beginning of 2019.

And he's keen to repay the faith shown in him by not only Tony Mowbray, but for the supporters, too.

“I think that when someone comes through the ranks the fans tend to like them," he added with a smile.

“But the support for me has been amazing. Their support on social media and when I’ve been playing has been great."
