Etuhu expects tough encounter

24 August 2012

Rovers play their third game of the season this Saturday with Leicester City the visitors to Ewood Park.

Dickson Etuhu knows that Saturday's match against Leicester City certainly won't be easy.

Rovers have been solid in their two games played so far with a draw away at Ipswich Town and a home win against Hull City, but the Nigerian international believes that the Ewood Park clash against the Foxes will be their hardest to date.

"It'll be a tough game, a very tough game," said Etuhu.

"But we are at home, we have to fancy ourselves, they are a big team, a big club but so are we, so we'll just have to prepare right for that game and try and win it, to go out and win it.

"The aim at the beginning of the season was to get seven points from the three games and we can still get that so we'll keep on pushing.

"We are on the right track but it is a long long way, there will be ups and downs in this league and we know that, we just have to keep going."

After taking points from the first two games, Dickson wants Rovers to continue that this Saturday.

"It is about not losing, it is about getting a point, nicking three points here and there, it all counts.

"It is a league where you have to just concentrate on the next game and don't think too far ahead.

"People say we are one of the favourites, we know that, but we have to just concentrate on each game that is the most important thing."
