Build on Rams point

28 January 2014

Matt Kilgallon wants Rovers to show that Saturday's draw against Derby County was a good point by adding three more against Barnsley this evening.

Rovers were pegged back late on at Ewood Park by the Rams, but Killa knows that the point could be a good one if the can manage to go on a run starting at Oakwell tonight.

"We've another game on Tuesday so hopefully by the end of the week that point against Derby looks like a good one," Kilgallon told Rovers Player.

"Hopefully a run now in the back end of the season we'll pick some points up. Winning two or three games on the bounce takes you right up there, so we are positive still and we are really looking forward to Tuesday.

"Three games in a week can be hard, it is all about recovery, but we've got to go to Barnsley and really get at them and show why we are at the top and they are lower than us."

The central defender was a last minute inclusion in the starting eleven after Scott Dann failed a fitness test on an achilles injury on Saturday morning, but KIlgallon was eager to grasp his chance and now hopes for a run in the side.

"I couldn't wait to get out there and considering I haven't played much I felt great," added the 30-year-old.

"The gaffer has praised me a lot for being a voice in the changing room talking to the young lads and I've been given the chance there and I think I've taken it.

"I've just got to keep playing well and you keep the shirt. I've been patient and trained hard and I've got my rewards by keeping fit and doing things right."
