Take confidence from the Reading performance

3 November 2014

Boss Gary Bowyer has called on his side to keep the momentum going as they prepare for a tricky away test on Tuesday night.

Saturday saw Rovers defeat Reading 3-1 at Ewood Park to make it three consecutive league wins for the first time since the end of last season.

Attentions quickly switch to Tuesday as Ian Holloway's Millwall await at the Den, a match that the Rovers manager feels will be their toughest of the campaign so far.

"We take the confidence and the belief from those results but we aren't going to get carried away," Bowyer told Radio Rovers. "It is another step in the right direction in terms of their development.

"We've got to keep on top of them because we can't be complacent, nobody can be complacent in this league.

"Last week's performance has been backed up by the result today, but we can't rest on it as the toughest game of the season is coming up now and that is Millwall away on Tuesday.

"The main aim for us is to recover quickly. The fixture list hasn't been kind - to our supporters more than to us - we've a midweek journey to London, then a weekend trip to Brighton.

"We've got to play them at some point so we are just going to make sure that we recover and carry on with the performance levels that we have set ourselves over the last week or two."
