Elliott Bennett believes Rovers will have learnt a lot in their first season back in the Championship and will be better off for it next term.

A 15th place finish was seen as a decent enough return to the second tier for Tony Mowbray's men, and Bennett's determined to build on that when the new campaign comes around again in early August.
The 30-year-old appeared 42 times in all competitions for Rovers last term, showing his versatile side in filling in playing a number of different positions throughout the campaign.
And reflecting on the season, Bennett's happy enough but also admits that things could have been better for Mowbray's charges.
“I think we’ll look back on the campaign as a good one, but I do think we’ll also look back on a bit of a missed opportunity after being so close to the play-offs in January time," he said to iFollow Rovers.
“We ended up going on a bit of a bad run, which happens to all teams across a season, it’s just about how you bounce back from that.
“For us, we didn’t bounce back quickly enough, but on the whole, we’ve more than held our own in this division and haven’t looked over our shoulders.
“We’ve been competitive in pretty much every game this season and overall I think we look at it as a good campaign.
“We have a fantastic group of players and a brilliant manager at the helm. It’s good that the fans have expectations of us, we have those expectations ourselves."
