It's all about beating Leeds

3 April 2015

Markus Olsson has dismissed any suggestion that Rovers won't be 100% focused on tomorrow's trip to Elland Road.

With an FA Cup quarter-final replay looming large, the players could be forgiven for having half an eye on next Wednesday's Liverpool match, but the Swede insists the target is very much about getting three points against Leeds United on Saturday.

"The focus is definitely on the Leeds game and the manager has been on to us about that," said the Rovers defender.

"We know it is very important to finish as strongly as we possibly can in the league.

"There are seven games left and if we can do well in them all we will finish strongly.

"We finished strongly last season and started the season in the same way for a period of time, but the last two games we should have done better and got points.

"But we've been training well since we got back and hopefully we can take that into the games and have a good run."

Olsson knows it won't be easy against a resurgent Leeds side who have steadily moved up the league table.

It took a last minute winner from the penalty spot from Jordan Rhodes to secure all three points when the two sides met at Ewood back in November, and the defender is expecting another tough encounter.

The Swede added: "Leeds are in good form, playing quite well, and they played well when we beat them here.

"And that's what we'll be trying to do on Saturday, go over and get the three points."
