Home comforts have been key to Rovers’ recent revival, chalking up 12 points from the last four Ewood matches to move in to the top half of the Championship.

They ended a two month wait for an away win at Stoke City on November 30, but face a test of their credentials with back-to-back trips to Swansea City and Bristol City.

The 30 points collected by Rovers after 20 Championship games is only bettered by the 31 in 2014/15 since relegation from the Premier League.

The nine wins they have managed is the most at this stage of any of the last seven Championship campaigns.

Of those 30 points, 21 have been collected on home turf, with their three away wins at Hull, Reading and Stoke, their haul on the road from nine games.

Tony Mowbray has already stated their form on the road will define their season, having already lost six times, and the manager hopes the return of Darragh Lenihan will help plug gaps in a defensive line that has struggled when coming under the pump in away matches.

Swansea have already lost five times at the Liberty Stadium, and will be reeling after a 5-1 thumping at leaders West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, so Rovers will see no reason why they can’t continue riding the wave they’re currently on.

Then comes the team selection.

On one side there is the ‘why change something that is certainly working?’ and the players that have started these last four matches are more than deserving of their spot.

But on the flip side the manager will be well aware of his players’ workloads and the possibility of it being ‘one game too far’.

Since Mowbray took charge in February 2017 Rovers have named an unchanged team for three games in a row on four occasions.

Never have they gone four games unchanged, but this occasion is different, should changes arrive then none would be enforced by injury.

Rovers stuck with the same side for wins over Ipswich (January 19) and Hull (January 26) and then Brentford on February 2.

In 2018, Mowbray stuck with the same for wins against Shrewsbury (January 13) and Fleetwood (January 20) and the 1-1 draw with Northampton (January 27).

The only other time was just after Mowbray took charge, in March 2017, and that is the only time Rovers have gone unchanged during a three game week.

Then, they beat Derby on February 28, Wigan on March 4 and then drew with Cardiff on March 7.

Rovers have managed in this run, to forge partnerships in the spine of their team, Lenihan and Adarabioyo at the back, Evans and Travis in midfield, and Dack and Graham up front.

Sam Gallagher presents Mowbray with an interesting option, buoyed by his goal off the bench at Stoke City before making an impact late on against Derby.

Could the roles reverse and Gallagher be the man to lead the line with Graham offering the alternative off the bench?

Rovers look settled, and that has been a feature of these four wins a row.

Having a left-footed option, and they don’t come much better than that of Stewart Downing, has offered a welcome balance, as has his ability to run beyond Joe Rothwell down the left flank. 

It does feel like a gamble to continue in that role, but until Derrick Williams returns, with Amari’i Bell seemingly down the pecking order, keeping Downing there feels the best option.

Elliott Bennett would be a consideration for Mowbray, but not being a natural in that role, or that flank, would it be too much unnecessary change.

All will be revealed at 6.45pm on Wednesday night. Mowbray knows his selection will only likely come in for scrutiny should the result not go their way.

But for the manager, having clear thoughts of the reasoning behind any possible changes would leave him with a clear mind.
