Not a bad side at home so it will be difficult for Rovers but they should be full of confidence after Saturday.

Rovers cannot afford to drop many more points if they want to reach the play offs, although I will be happy when they have 50 points and are almost guaranteed safety. I think there is only one relegation place left to be decided as both Peterborough and Plymouth look out of arms length for us.
