A chance to put things right

Jordan Rhodes has stressed the importance of bouncing back to winning ways on Sunday.

After an excellent win over Reading a fortnight ago, Rovers disappointed last time out with the heavy loss away at Bolton Wanderers.

But with a match against local rivals Burnley next up, the Rovers top scorer knows there'll be no better feeling than to put things right against them.

"As a football club we try to treat it as we do for any other game," Rhodes told Rovers Player. "But we know that it isn't just another game, it is against our closest rivals.

"Having said that we were playing in a derby last weekend that we didn't get the right result in, we didn't put in a great performance.

"So that has gone now so this game is a great chance to put it right."

With no midweek match, Rovers have had to stew over last week's defeat a little longer than they'd have liked, but Rhodes is keen to take that frustration out on Burnley.

Rhodes added: "It has been such a long week, there are eight days between the games. It is just a shame that we didn't have a midweek game.

"I know that we have plenty coming up but it would have been nice to have put things right and had a bit of confidence going into Sunday's game.

"But what a better way to go out and put things right than the Burnley game."

Supporters are reminded that there will be no tickets on sale on the day of the Burnley game.

Rovers fans who have a database history of purchasing tickets have until 4.00pm on Saturday to get them from the Roverstore at Ewood Park, and until 5.30pm from the Oneroverstore in Blackburn town centre.

Adult prices are from £25 for Sunday's 12.30pm kick-off, but supporters can purchase a Burnley and AFC Bournemouth ticket together for just £31 for the two games in the RFS Riverside Stand with our special double deal discount.
