Tony Mowbray admitted there was a level of concern at having to name the team he did for the Leeds United friendly just 10 days out from the start of the Championship season.
Jake Garrett, Hayden Carter and Tyler Magloire all started against the Premier League side, with only two players in the squad, Thomas Kaminski and Darragh Lenihan, aged over 24.
Ben Brereton was the only player on the bench with a first-team start to his name, but to their great credit, the youngsters stuck to their task and were given a great ovation by the home crowd at the final whistle as they held the Premier League side to a 1-1 draw.
Rovers were without 10 senior players for the penultimate pre-season friendly as Mowbray continues to battle with unavailability issues in his squad.
