CRAIG Conway believes there will be a great sense of occasion when Burnley arrive at Ewood Park tomorrow, but the winger knows the result is all that matters.

Conway is one of just two Rovers players at the club who started the last Ewood meeting between the two sides in October 2015.

The 32-year-old is yet to taste victory against Rovers’ fiercest rivals in his two derby outings, with the Clarets having had the upper hand since the Premier League meeting of March 2010.

Six games without a win will only add to the anticipation of the Rovers fans as they look to their team to cause an upset in the Carabao Cup second round tie.

With the draw made almost two weeks ago, Conway admits it has been at the back of everyone’s minds, even though two league games have been played since then.

“I have been involved before and they are brilliant,” Conway said.

“It’s been something in the back of our minds that we have been looking forward to.

“It’s always a great occasion and everyone is up for it, on and off the park.

“It will be massive if we can get a result.”

Corry Evans is the other Rovers player to have featured in an East Lancashire derby at Ewood Park for the club, and both will be hoping to play a part tomorrow night.

Rovers boss Tony Mowbray will be wary of the duo’s fitness with Evans having played back-to-back 90 minutes for the first time in nine months, while Conway has just returned from a month out with a hamstring injury.

But the former Cardiff man says everyone will be aiming to feature in the game which has created a ‘buzz’ around the club.

“Watching the draw I think it was almost inevitable that we were going to get drawn against Burnley,” he added.

“It’s brilliant for everyone and it gives everyone a boost.

“Hopefully there will be a great atmosphere which I’m sure there will be, they are brilliant games, especially at Ewood Park.

“Everyone involved with the club is looking forward to it and there’s a real buzz about the fans.”
