Rovers boss tony Mowbray is pleased with the way his squad is shaping up as Rovers head into the final months of the season.
Talking to the press ahead of the Northampton match Mowbray said “Not just in numbers or personnel but also an understanding of what it takes to win football matches, the camaraderie in the group”
“There was an uncertainty at the start of the season of whether this was the right environment for them to play their football, for reasons like having families and being able to earn money in the league up but as we’ve talked many times before I’ve said that if you played a part in us finding ourselves in League One and I felt you were good enough you should stay to help us get out of League One and back in to the Championship.
“Moving forward hopefully they can play in the Championship with us again.
“The strength of character, the team spirit and the camaraderie is so much stronger than it was at the start of the season when there were a few doubts and uncertainties about whether they would still be here at the end of the summer window.
“At this moment I’m happy with the group, they’re working extremely hard to try and get in to the starting XI.”
