Your new-look Rovers programme returns tonight for our Carabao Cup encounter against Oldham Athletic at Ewood Park.

A new season means new content, and this campaign we're aiming to interview every member of the 1994-95 Premier League-winning squad in every league issue.

For tonight's clash, we spoke to someone who was in and around the squad during that season and also has links to The Latics.

Current Head of Coaching Tony Carss was at the beginning of his playing career during 1994-95 before playing for Oldham later on his career.

Tony talks training with the likes of Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton under Sir Kenny Dalglish, before reflecting on his time at Boundary Park. He also discusses the Under-18s' recent trip to Madrid, where the group spent just under two weeks rubbing shoulders with European giants Real Madrid.

Bradley Johnson steps up for our Big Interview as he reflects on a memorable Carabao Cup run with Derby County last season, which started against Oldham and took in a trip to Old Trafford to beat Manchester United.

The experienced midfielder also tells us about settling into life in the north-west and his first couple of competitive games as a Rovers player, as well as much more.

We open the history books to look back at a memorable match against Laurent Banide's side, and also profile a Rover from yesteryear.

In addition, there are updates for our Under-23s, Under-18s and Ladies teams as well as the usual pieces with the Blackburn Rovers Community Trust and news from around the club.

There's plenty more inside our publication, which costs just £2, and you can purchase yours from our programme sellers dotted around Ewood Park.
