Gestede gunning for Millwall

28 March 2014

Rudy Gestede wants all three points when they face Millwall this Saturday.

The popular striker was Rovers' last-gasp hero on Tuesday night when his 93rd minute header earned the club a point against Watford at Vicarage Road.

With Rovers trailing going into added time at the end of the game, the January signing rose highest to meet Matt Kilgallon's centre to power the ball into the back of the net via the post.

But whilst Gestede was delighted to see Rovers earn a point against the Hornets, he knows it should have been all three.

"It took me a few seconds to see the ball get in and after that I was very happy because we got a point from Watford," said Gestede.

"But it was also frustrating because I think we could have had more points, but football is like this, one point is better than nothing.

"Maybe it will be a good point by the 3rd of May, maybe it will enable us to play in the play-offs."

Millwall are Rovers' next opponents and it will be a game that Gestede will be going all out to win.

"There are nine games to go so there are plenty of points to have. You never know what can happen, I still feel we can reach the play-offs.

"Everybody is pushing in the same way, we have shown we are stronger and are focused on the league.

"We need points, win or draw, as long as we get something we keep progressing. Nine games to go, next game is away at Millwall, which is not an easy place, but we are going to do our best to come back to Blackburn with the points.

"After that we have three home games and we need to win these games to think about the play-offs."
