Lewis Travis felt Rovers showed they can mix it with the best after last weekend’s win over Sheffield Wednesday, but knows they must raise their game again as they head to face Leeds United.

Rovers face Marcelo Bielsa’s high-flying side tomorrow afternoon at Elland Road looking to back up their win over Wednesday who had looked set to go third in the division until the late fightback.

Midfielder Travis knows Rovers will need to put in plenty of work against a Leeds side who have become famed for their ability in possession under boss Bielsa.

But he’s confident that Rovers can find a level of performance to cause the hosts problems.

The 22-year-old said: “I think Leeds are dominant with the ball so everyone will have to put in a shift.

“As a group of players we want to aspire to get out of this league and the only way you’re going to do that is to beat teams like Leeds who have shown themselves to be one of the best in the league.”

Rovers ended a six game wait for a win against Wednesday, having collapsed to lose 3-2 at local rivals Preston seven days earlier.

And Travis felt the comeback against the Owls was the perfect response to that Deepdale defeat.

He added: “It was a great weekend, all the lads wanted to bounce back, and we did that.

“It was disappointing to let the fans down, which we had in recent weeks, so it was good that we put in a performance like that to help put smiles back on their faces.

“I think we dominated the game, Sheffield Wednesday are a top team in this league, you’ve seen that with the recent results, and we showed that we can mix it with the best.

“It was all positive. In recent weeks we’ve not been at it, but the fans showed faith in us, we repaid them with the win and hopefully we can build on it now.”

Traivs was surprisingly left out in the derby defeat at Preston, but was back in the middle of Rovers' midfield against Wednesday. 

While disappointed to miss out, Travis hopes to have done enough to keep his place for the final game before the international break.

He explained: “I always want to be part of every game, but this is game is extra special, like the derby.

“Unfortunately I didn’t play in, but this is another massive game against a team with a massive fanbase.”
