The partnership between Corry Evans and Lewis Travis was impressive against Ipswich Town on Saturday, and the senior man of the pair was quick to praise his partner in crime.
Evans returned to link up with youngster Travis at the heart of the Rovers midfield against the Tractor Boys, which was the 21-year-old's sixth successive start for the club.
He's keeping Rovers regular Richie Smallwood out of the team, and Evans is thrilled to see the competition for places so strong in the midfield area.
“It's great to have those youngsters creating competition," Evans told iFollow Rovers following our third win in a row in the Championship.
"I imagine the last six months or so have been hard for the likes of Trav and Joe [Nuttall], but they've kept their heads down and kept working hard.
“They've got themselves back in the first team, back in the manager's thoughts and for the squad that can only be a good thing.
“We have a lot of good players coming through the Academy now who can step up into the first team when needed.
“Trav's been phenomenal in the games he has played. He has great legs, works hard for the team and has kept himself on the teamsheet. He fully deserves everything he has got going for him so far.
“You try to pass on your experience, but he's a bright boy who reads the game well and knows where he has to be."
