One Rover who could have been in action last week is Greg Cunningham. The loanee left back was part of the 40-man Republic of Ireland squad named by Mick McCarthy before missing out on making the final cut.

But having been without a game for close to two weeks, Cunningham, who is on loan from Championship rivals Cardiff City, admits it's been nice to recharge ahead of another busy schedule.

Rovers face five tricky games before the next batch of international fixtures, with Cunningham keen to move on from the defeat to West Bromwich Albion last time out and look forward to better times ahead.

“We got off to such a good great start," he said when reflecting on the clash against The Baggies.

“We felt unlucky not to come away with anything, just a few errors proved costly, especially against a top side.

“We were disappointed. It was a tough start fixture wise but we just have to make sure from this next block after the international break we hit the ground running and put in a good performance and get a good result against Millwall.

“I’m a firm believer about not looking too far ahead with fixtures.

“We’re just focused on Millwall and trying to get the job done and move on to the next game.

“The international breaks in September, October and November really breaks down the season up towards Christmas and then you can see where you’re at.

“We’ve been training hard. We had a good few days training last week which was tough and it was nice to get the break. We’ve come in, worked hard, and all eyes on Millwall.

“With the squad we have I don’t see why we shouldn’t be putting in top performances," the 28-year-old added.

“The way the Championship goes it’s a very competitive league so we have to make sure our performances remain high and the results will come.

“The boys did well in getting promoted from League One and then again last year but it’s time to move on and start pushing up the league.

“We are all buying in to what this club wants to do, working hard and will take each game as it comes.”
