Time to focus on our travels

3 December 2013

Gary Bowyer has challenged his squad to take their home form on the road.

Rovers travel to take on Ipswich Town this Tuesday evening with an excellent defensive record at home, and the manager knows that now is the time to start to get the same sort of results on their travels.

"At home we have been magnificent, we've kept five clean sheets out of the last six," said the Rovers boss.

"It is full credit to the defenders and the goalie who pulled out an out standing save on Saturday.

"We now have to transfer that to our away form and that is the challenge that we set the players straight after the game.

"If we can go to Ipswich and keep a clean sheet then we've got a good chance of winning the game.

"We've just got to focus on everything that we have done in training and carry that out on the road.

"I don't think there is any magic formula just because it is at home or away, the game is still the same, we've just got to go with that mindset on the road."

Bowyer knows it won't be easy, but in a league where any team can win on their day, he knows the points are there to play for.

Bowyer added: "They are a good team, they are well organised, they've got a fantastic manager and we know it is going to be a tough place to go.

"But after the weekend and the character that we've shown we are looking forward to it."
