Keep that unbeaten mentality

11 November 2014

Corry Evans felt that Saturday's draw with Brighton & Hove Albion was a good point to take into the international break.

The midfielder, who has now linked up with Northern Ireland for their forthcoming Euro 2016 qualifier against Romania, believed Rovers deserved a share of the spoils at a difficult place to play.

The draw ensured Rovers went into the break maintaining their unbeaten run, something Evans knows is important.

"I think it is a good point," said the 24-year-old. "They've got a decent side with the potential to be higher up in the table. In the last couple of years they've shown that.

"Every time I've come here I don't think I've even won a game so it is a good point and it will add to our tally and hopefully it can be a good one come the end of the season."

Not for the first time this season Rovers had to come from a goal behind to earn something out of a game, Rudy Gestede's 10th goal of the campaign securing a point for the Lancashire club.

Evans feels it shows that the team spirit in the camp is high and that it can serve them well as the season progresses.

"We are all honest lads and we all work hard for each other and back each other up and you've got to do that to be successful," added Evans.

"It takes a while for the team to blend and I think everyone saw evidence of that at the end of the season last year with the 12-game unbeaten run.

"It is pretty similar to the seven-game run that we have at the minute where there's been a few draws, but we aren't losing games and it is a good mentality to have.

"You've just got to turn up for every game and be focused and have the right mentality or else you are going to get beat it is as simple as that.

"It is just about being better than your man at the end of the day and winning that battle all over the pitch."

Evans and Rovers return to action after the international break when Leeds United are the visitors to Ewood Park on Saturday 22nd November.
