Hanley: We're looking forward

22 August 2014

Grant Hanley believes that despite the midweek loss to Norwich, there were still plenty of positives.

Rovers slipped to their first loss in 14 league outings at Carrow Road on Tuesday as key decisions went against them, but Hanley feels it has brought them closer as a group.

"We were obviously disappointed with the result on Tuesday but I think there were loads of positives to take from that," Hanley told Rovers Player.

"We were probably a bit unlucky with a couple of decisions that never went our way, on another night we would have got a different result.

"The lads' attitude on Tuesday night was brilliant, it is a good group, we are looking forward now."

The Rovers captain wants the side to take out their frustrations on this Saturday's opponents AFC Bournemouth and claim a first home league win of the season.

The Cherries were the last team to beat Rovers on home soil in the league and Hanley knows it won't be an easy match.

"We are looking forward to Saturday, we know it is going to be a test, but we are looking forward to it," added the defender.

"We need to make Ewood a difficult place to come this year, so if we can get that first win on the board at home it can be the start of a run.

"We are in no doubt it is going to be hard, it is a tough, tough league, but we are confident that we've got the squad that can do well in this league this year.

"We've just got to continue working hard and keep trying to improve. It is a good group of lads and hopefully we can."
