The game takes place at Brockhall on Saturday 28 January, with an 11:00 (UK) kick-off.
Ben Wilkinson's young starlets are aiming for their third Under-18 Premier League title in succession.
We’re currently top of the table with 30 points from 14 games and head into the match on the back of three league wins in succession – a 3-0 victory at home to Newcastle, a 3-0 win at Leeds and a 5-0 home win over Nottingham Forest.
We’re also unbeaten in Under-18s Premier League North since November, over seven matches with five wins and two draws.
Wilkinson’s side will also be buoyed by the result in the corresponding home fixture over Blackburn in October, when we produced a five-star performance at the City Football Academy.
Rovers are in 12th in a 13-team league heading into the fixture, with 10 points from 13 games.
