A result to give them belief

28 October 2014

Gary Bowyer isn't getting carried away despite picking up an impressive seven points from last week's three games.

After the draw away at Ipswich Town, and a home victory over Birmingham City, Rovers ended the period with a convincing 3-1 win over Nottingham City on Saturday.

The Rovers boss hopes the Forest triumph gives the players belief as they embark on another busy week of football starting with this Saturday's Ewood Park clash with Reading, but he knows there's still plenty of work to do for his young side.

"This result should give them a massive shot of confidence and belief in their ability because they are a young group and they are learning all the time," said Bowyer.

"They were excellent. I think it is really important that we come to place like Forest and perform as well as we have done.

"What it does do is gives the players a massive belief in their ability. As young players we keep telling them, but this result will give them a bigger belief than us talking about it.

"If you look at the effort they put in at Ipswich away after going down to ten men and the shift that everybody put in.

"Away to Ipswich and Nottingham and at home to Birmingham - off the back of them sacking their manager the day before, are tough games.

"There's been an unbelievable response from everybody."

Tickets for Saturday's match against Reading are on open sale up until the 3.00pm kick-off.
