Lockwood not feeling the pressure

Rovers survived their first season back in the second tier of English football for the first time in 50 years last time out after a difficult start, but Lockwood has dispelled the notion that promoted teams usually find it more difficult to stave off relegation in their second campaign.

Lockwood said: "I don't know about extra pressure. The only pressure the players feel is the pressure we put on ourselves.

"We want to improve as a team, we want to become better players. We make our own pressure.

"Last season it was daunting because we didn't know what to expect. It's no easier this season, but we've proved we're more than capable of holding our own at this level."
