Rovers midfielder Joe Rothwell is eager for the season not to peter out ahead of the final eight games of the campaign.

With no game this weekend, the international break has come at the perfect time for Tony Mowbray's side, with the boss hopeful of having the likes of Charlie Mulgrew, Jack Rodwell and Darragh Lenihan available for the trip to Aston Villa at the end of the month.

Rovers have had a tough time in recent weeks, with the latest setback coming on the road to Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.

And looking ahead to the run in, Rothwell is hoping errors will be eradicated and Rovers' fortunes will change sooner rather than later.

“We’re not getting cut open by any team, it’s just mistakes and set pieces that are killing us," the 24-year-old admitted.

“That’s the way it’s going at the moment, nothing is dropping for us and we need to assess.

“Hopefully things will start falling our way after the international break. You really don’t want to end the season is disappointing form.

“We’re all hopeful that the next eight games can ensure we have a strong finish to the campaign."
