The defender re-joined the Club on loan on the eve of the new campaign, joining with fellow Stoke City striker Dom Telford on a season-long loan.
Sweeney was a popular figure with the Rovers fanbase during his first spell at the Club, as the defender made sixteen appearances between January and the end of the season.
The towering centre-half just missed out on returning to the Rovers side for the opening fixture of the season at Charlton but made his first appearance of the 2017/18 season during the EFL Cup tie against Cambridge United.
Sweeney scored his first Rovers goal in a 3-2 defeat against Oldham Athletic at the Mem and has since added goals against Blackpool and Swindon Town in the Checkatrade Trophy.
