Colin Kazim-Richards is eager to get Rovers’ Ewood Park campaign off to a winning start.
The summer signing opened our account for the season with a debut goal against Ipswich on Saturday, but was disappointed he couldn’t send the 1,000 travelling Rovers fans home happy with three points.
The striker is looking forward to making his home bow against Hull this evening and hopes to play his part in a maiden Championship victory.
Kaz said: “We’re looking at it and we can’t wait. After the Ipswich game we were already talking about the Hull game.
“As a team, inside the dressing, we’re all bonding, we’re all gelling, we’re all interacting. The more we play with each other, the better we’re going to get.
“You can see it in training, gradually we’re getting better. We’re gelling, we’re moving the ball nicely and we can’t wait for our first home game against Hull.
“I’d like to see the fans come out. I wasn’t here, but I know what went on last year and what’s been going on.
“This is their team, this is what they live for. I can feel that, because I’m a football fan too. I’m sure that there are a lot of fans that are dedicated to the team who will come out.
“We just want the fans to come out and enjoy the football. Hopefully we can put on a show and a winning performance to make the fans enjoy the football again.”
Kaz is well aware that it is up to the players on the park to instil and inspire that good feeling amongst the supporters.
“Definitely it’s up to us,” he added. “That’s what we’re getting paid to do. We have to go out there and do the job.
“We’re getting paid to put points on the board and honestly that’s what the players here are really trying to do. That’s what we look forward to doing.”
After scoring twice against Cork City in pre-season, and then netting the opener at Portman Road four days ago, Kaz heads into his home debut in fine form and looking to continue his scoring streak.
“I hope so,” he added. “I’m in good form at the moment, the last two games. Me personally, I hope I get another goal, but more importantly, I hope we get the three points and I can contribute to the game in any way.
“At Ipswich, it felt good to score. It felt good to see the fans jumping up and down. I was disappointed with the chances I missed and disappointed that I couldn’t help my team get the three points, but hopefully I can prove that right tonight.”
