Darren Moore says he is looking forward to having fans back in the stadium this weekend when Rovers travel to face Charlton in Sky Bet League One.
While disappointed there will be no Rovers fans in attendance, the manager feels that having 1,000 home supporters in attendance will have an impact on the intensity of the game.
He said: “It will be good to play in front of some supporters, I’m sure those 1,000 will be really excited to be back in the stadium.
“It will make a difference to playing in front of nobody, the Valley is a big ground but it will still add to it.
“The players have got used to playing with no fans, so this is the next step in things heading towards some sort of normality.”
Moore says the work has continued this week to ensure Rovers’ passing game is improved when they travel to the capital.
He added: “For us it’s about focusing on how we can hurt Charlton, it will be a tough game against a team who started their season off well last week.
“The big thing for us this week was to settle things down and start using the ball a bit more which is where we struggled against MK Dons.
“We’ve worked hard on having that fluidity going forward but we didn’t quite have that, maybe because it was the first league game.”
