Thomas Frank has branded Rovers as the best attacking team in the division ahead of their meeting this afternoon.

Two more goals in the midweek win over Millwall took Rovers’ tally from their 15 Championship matches to 29, the most in the league, with 14 of those scored by Adam Armstrong.

That’s one more than Brentford striker Ivan Toney who has 13 after his penalty in Tuesday’s 2-0 win at Rotherham United.

Both sides are in fine form, with the Bees unbeaten in eight, and Rovers in six, as they square up with each other this afternoon.

Frank has built up Rovers’ attacking strength, but knows his side have the defensive strength to stand up to that, with five clean sheets in their last seven games that has moved them up to fourth.

Looking ahead to the game, Frank said: “We next face Blackburn, who are maybe the best offensive team in the division at this moment in time. I think they are amazing, so I think that could be our toughest test defensively but we’ll be ready for it.

“Keeping five clean sheets is massive and very difficult in this league, so the boys deserve a lot of praise.”

Frank will hope to be able to call upon the services of Denmark international Henrik Dalsgaard who missed the win over Rotherham with the injury that forced him off in last weekend’s win over QPR.

A return to the side for Dalsgaard gives Frank the flexibility to switch to a back three, while he will weigh up whether to hand a second consecutive start to striker Marcus Forss who netted the opener against the Millers.

“Marcus deserves some praise, but also the team do in terms of helping him,” Frank added.

“What he learned and achieved is that workrate to come into our team. He worked so hard.”
