Tony Mowbray has put his Rovers players through a more intense training schedule this week ahead of the visit of Rotherham United to Ewood Park.

Mowbray afforded his players Monday off last week, after the exertions of the West Brom draw and given the injuries to a number of players within his squad.

But the first team squad will be given just the usual one day off this week having trained on Monday and Tuesday before resuming their build-up for the Millers match tomorrow.

Rovers face a Rotherham United side whose form, particularly away from home, has picked up of late.

They recorded draws at Middlesbrough and Preston last month, their first points on the road this season after starting with six successive defeats.

And they backed that up with a comeback home win over Swansea City last weekend meaning they have lost just one of their last six matches.

Like Rovers, Paul Warne’s men were promoted from League One last season and are currently 18th in the table with 17 points.

“We’ll do more training this week,” Mowbray said of their preparations for the final match before the international break.

“Last week was more of a down week really after the real exertions of West Brom and the three game week.

“They had Monday off, some light training Tuesday and had Wednesday and a two day build-up.

“This has been a full week of build up to Rotherham because we have to be respectful of them.

“They are picking up some decent results of late.

“They beat Swansea, went to Middlesbrough and got a 0-0, drew with Preston, so we know what’s coming and we should expect a very tough game.”
