Wins not words

21 October 2014

Rudy Gestede admits it is time for action not words as Rovers take on managerless Birmingham City at Ewood Park this evening.

The Rovers striker was pleased with the way the side battled for a point against Ipswich Town at the weekend, but knows that they have to back that up with all three on home soil this Tuesday night.

"When Marshy scored it was like a win," said Gestede. "We fought until the end and got a point, we never gave up, it is our character.

"I think it is a good start, a good point for the confidence against Birmingham, but we need a few wins in a row.

"If you want to get in the play-off places we need to win our home games. It won't be an easy game, it is never easy in this league.

“We’ve got everything to be in the top six, but now it’s enough to speak and say we’ve got everything, we need to show it on the pitch and prove we’re right.”

The Benin international has fond memories of the last time the two sides met. Gestede grabbed his first career hat-trick in a 4-2 win at St. Andrews last April.

The frontman added: "It is a good memory, it was a good day, we won and I scored a hat-trick.

"But now it is in the past, it was last season, each game is different. We need three points, we need a win."

Tickets for this evening's game will be on open sale until the 7.45pm kick-off. Tickets are priced from £17 for Adults, £11 for Seniors/Students and from £6 for Juniors under 17.
