Go and stand up to it

24 April 2015

Gary Bowyer is expecting another tough test on their travels when they face Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

The Terriers have lost just the once in their last eight outings, whilst Rovers go to the John Smith's Stadium looking to finish their season away from home with an eighth unbeaten match.

The Rovers boss saw them recently in the 2-1 win over Ipswich Town and knows that they have enough attacking talent to pose a threat.

"They are in fine form," said Bowyer.

"I went and watched them the other week when they played Ipswich and the front two at the time was James Vaughan and Nahki Wells, and they've got Ishmael Miller there who played the other night. So whoever they play up top is going to be a handful.

"I've been impressed with Jacob Butterfield, he always has an eye for goal so we know it is going to be a tough game going there.

"It is going to be a challenge that we are looking forward to, we've got to go and stand up to it."

Rovers can take heart from the last time they went to the John Smith's Stadium. Jordan Rhodes scoring a hat-trick against his former club in a 4-2 away win in March 2014.

"It was an impressive performance from the team and obviously Jordan as the goalscorer," added the manager.

"He can't wait to go back there because he had such a great time and we hope that we can produce the chances for him to continue scoring."

Tickets for Saturday's match will go off sale at the Roverstore at Ewood Park at 4pm this Friday.

Fans can pay on the day at Huddersfield, cash only from the away turnstiles. Prices are  Adults £24, Seniors (60+) £14, Under 18’s £10
