Put it right on Saturday

7 November 2014

After a bittersweet match in midweek, Shane Duffy wants Rovers to go into the upcoming international break on the back of a win on Saturday.

The giant defender scored his first goal in Rovers colours at the Den on Tuesday night, but despite leading 2-0 against the ten men of Millwall, the visitors were pegged back at the death.

Now as Rovers prepare to travel south once more to take on Brighton & Hove Albion, the Republic of Ireland international wants to make amends.

"We let it slip and we are disappointed," said Duffy. "It felt like a loss at the end.

"We had the quality for the first 70 minutes, but in the last 20 minutes we let ourselves down.

"Millwall away from home is a tough place to go, so to be 2-0 up just shows how far we've come and shows that we are a good team.

"We've got to put it right on Saturday, it is another big game away from home and we've got to try and do it for 90 minutes this time.

"We are still on a good run so hopefully we can round off a good week with seven points."

Duffy admits it was a relief to get off the mark with his goal against Millwall, as the 22-year-old felt he should have found the back of the net already this term.

"It was just a relief for me because I've had chances in every game," added Duffy.

"The gaffer has been on at me to score so finally I'm off so hopefully I can get a few more.

"Usually Rudy takes them away from me so I can't get near, but I'm happy it stayed away from him and I was able to get it."

Tickets for the Brighton match will go off sale at Ewood at 4.00pm Friday. Prices are £30 for Adults, £22 for Over 65s, £15 for Under 18s and £8 for Under 10s.

After that tickets will be available from the Brighton ticket office on the day of the game but supporters should note that there is a further £1.50 booking fee for all matchday purchases.
