Lewis Travis believes all the pressure is on Fulham ahead of this weekend's trip to Craven Cottage for Rovers' second game of the season.

Like Rovers, the Whites suffered opening day defeat to a newly-promoted side, with Barnsley coming out on top against Scott Parker's promotion favourites at Oakwell.

An expectant crowd will be greeting the west Londoners for their first home game of the campaign, but Travis says Rovers can go there with nothing to lose, as Tony Mowbray's men aim to get off the mark in 2019-20.

“I think when you look at the results from last weekend there were a few upsets in there, including Fulham losing at Barnsley," the 21-year-old midfielder reflected ahead of the clash.

“We just have to dust ourselves off and go again. We can’t get too attached to the defeat against Charlton, we just need to focus on our own game.

“Throughout the weeks, whether it’s the start or the finish, anyone can beat anyone.

“It’s about putting three points on the board. We’ve worked hard in pre-season and I felt we deserved to win on Saturday. But if we play as we know we can play I’m sure we’re in for a good season.

“Fulham have massive pressure on them to bounce straight back up to the Premier League and that could work in our favour.

“But it’s a case of 11 v 11 and hopefully we can get the job done on the day," he added.

“I think we just want to concentrate on ourselves and put all the focus on Saturday."
