Working as hard as we can

Jordan Rhodes insists Rovers will do all they can to earn as many points as possible in the run to the end of the season.

Rovers face one of Rhodes' former clubs in Ipswich Town with three points a must if they are to move them back into the play-off shake-up.

Rhodes knows that Rovers only have an outside chance of reaching the top six, but he insists that there'll be no let up from the lads.

"We've got seven tough games between now and the end of the season," said the striker. "It is going to take a phenomenal run to get ourselves into the play-offs but these things can happen in football, so we'll see.

"Our next game is Ipswich who are above us as well, it would have been nice to have taken three points off one of our play-off rivals in Brighton, but Ipswich are another of our play-off rivals so we'll come back Saturday and try and do the best we can again."

Rovers have scored plenty of goals in recent weeks, but with four consecutive draws they've also conceded, but Rhodes and the rest of the squad are working hard to put that right.

"It is a team effort, we attack as a team and we defend as a team, it is frustrating for us all," Rhodes told Rovers Player.

"We are working as hard as we can and doing the best we can, and that is all we can ask for at the end of the day.

"We are doing something right and if we take that positive mentality to Saturday then we'll be okay."

Rhodes, who scored his 50th goal for the club on Tuesday night, knows it won't be easy against Ipswich Town as Mick McCarthy's side are also chasing a top-six spot.

Rhodes added: "We have to be right on our game to give Ipswich a run for their money. It will be nice to take three points off our play-off rivals.

"We'll keep going until the very end, we've got an exciting end with Wigan at home on the last day of the season, so if we can have the deficit in the last game of the season as three points between us and them then we'll take it right down to the wire.

"We'll keep going and we'll see where it takes us."
