A chance to make amends

28 December 2014

Josh King aims to put the disappointment of Friday's loss to Bolton behind him when Rovers take on Middlesbrough this Sunday afternoon.

King scored his first goal of the season in the Boxing Day match, a game they dominated for long spells, but ultimately without reward.

The Norwegian international was sorry Rovers weren't able to delight the 4500 travelling supporters at the Macron, but aims to put that right at Ewood today.

King said: “I don’t think we deserved to leave with no points.

“We had a lot of chances but didn’t put them away. They did and that’s football.

“We’ve got a game on Sunday at home to Middlesbrough, it’s going to be very tough but we’ve just got to keep our heads up high.

“It’s important that we do that, not just for ourselves but also for the fans.

“We had amazing support today, with 4,500 travelling. We’ve got to thank them and we’re just as disappointed as they are that we’re leaving with no points.

“But Sunday is another game and that’s what’s good about football, there’s always another chance to bounce back and that’s what we’ll try and do on Sunday.”

Rovers are encouraging supporters to get their tickets for this afternoon's match against Middlesbrough well in advance of the 3.00pm kick-off.

Tickets for the game are currently on sale to home fans with a database history of purchasing match tickets priced from £21 for Adults, from £13 for Students and Seniors 65 and over, and from just £8 for Under-17s.

The Roverstore will be open for ticket sales from 10.30am with the club anticipating another large attendance, swelled by a sizeable visiting support. Therefore, supporters are being advised to arrive early to avoid delays.

Due to the large number of away coaches, this could cause congestion on the approach roads to Ewood Park, especially from the Darwen End, which is likely to impact on users of Car Park B.

Also with roadworks that are part of the Pennine Reach Ewood Gyratory Scheme, car parking options around the stadium are reduced. Matchday parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis from Car Park H and Car Park F priced at £10.
