In our own hands

Scott Dann wants to avoid any last day worries by ensuring Rovers' safety on Saturday.

Tuesday night's 2-1 win over Millwall means Rovers go into this weekend's match against Crystal Palace at Ewood Park knowing a win will secure their place in next season's second tier.

"That is our aim," said the Rovers captain. "We know it is still mathematically possible for it to happen but after performing like we did against Millwall we want to go to the Crystal Palace game at home with our fans behind us and win that game.

"We don't want to count on other results, we want to put it to bed before the final game of the season."

Rovers go into the game against Palace in good heart, boosted by a run of results that has seen the club pick up nine points out of a possible twelve.

But despite that upturn in form there will be no resting on laurels as results in the league this season has shown that anything can happen.

"We've won three out of four now and there are still teams around us, it is still going to be tough because you've seen how quickly results can change in this league and the way things can happen.

"So we'll be concentrating on nothing less than getting a positive result on Saturday.

"We've got ourselves in the position where we are five points clear of the drop zone with two games to go and apart from Saturday at Watford we are playing quite well.

"We've got to take that into Saturday, we can't rely on any other results, we've got it in our own hands and we'll be going to Ewood with a lot of confidence and hopefully get the right result."

Tickets for Saturday's match will be on sale until the 3.00pm kick-off. Prices are £12 for Adults, £6 Seniors and £1 Juniors in all areas except the Jack Walker centre.
