Many neutrals would have had Rovers as a home banker against Ipswich Town at the weekend.
But as we all know, football is never as easy as looking at the table and predicting a result.
Rovers were made to work hard for their 2-0 victory over the Tractor Boys, with a Danny Graham penalty swiftly followed up with Joe Nuttall finishing off a fine flowin move.
And speaking to Corry Evans after the game, the Northern Ireland international admitted that battles against relegation-threatened sides are often the toughest tests.
“It's difficult to play against teams scrapping for their lives," he reflected to iFollow Rovers post-match.
"They are always potential banana skins and can be pretty cagey, which I felt was the case, particularly in the first half.
“You have to take control and be dominant and I felt we did that in the second half.
“In this league, if you can keep clean sheets you're going to be well set and solid. It's then about your strikers and wingers scoring the goals.
“Joe Nuttall, Arma [Adam Armstrong], they are playing great and it's nice to have players on fire, scoring goals and getting assists."
