Eager for the first three points

14 August 2015

Rovers travel to Huddersfield tomorrow afternoon looking to get their first victory of the season under their belts.

After last Saturday's loss against Wolves, boss Gary Bowyer is keen for Rovers to put their opening day disappointment behind them and get their campaign underway with three points agains the Terriers.

Neither team won on the opening day of the season last weekend, so there'll be extra incentive for both sides in this Roses clash.

"We want to try and get our first win of the season and Saturday presents us with that opportunity," Bowyer told Rovers Player.

"It is massively important, as soon you get it it just adds to the confidence that the players already have.

"After Saturday's performance against Wolves the players were very disappointed with the outcome of the game and the manner of the game.

"It is a disappointment that we didn't get something but now we have to move on and focus all our attentions onto Huddersfield.

"We are looking for a response from the group, we want a reaction and we have to keep improving and wanting to get better.

"We have got to have that belief and confidence in what we did last week and look to still improve on it."

There could be goals galore once more at the John Smith's Stadium, with 14 goals scored between the two sides in the last three encounters.

But after letting a two-goal lead slip last season, Bowyer doesn't want a repeat on this occasion.

He added: "They have always been lively games and I'm sure it will be another entertaining one on Saturday.

"Unfortunately for us we didn't see the game out after being 2-0 up last season, so we need to go to Huddersfield, start as impressively as we did against Wolves, and come away with the points.

"We know there is never an easy game in the Championship, you can see that already with some of the results this season."

Supporters who haven't yet purchased tickets for Saturday's match against Huddersfield Town will be able to do so on the day of the game.

Some 800 tickets have so far been sold for the first away trip of the season, with tickets going off sale at Ewood at 4pm this Friday.

Advanced ticket prices for the match are £27.50 for Adults, £17 for Seniors (60 & over), £10.00 for Juniors (17 & Under) and £5 for Under 8’s. After that supporters can pay cash only from the away turnstiles, albeit with a £3 increase on the day.

Fans are also reminded that it is an offence for any spectator to persistently stand in a seated area throughout the game, and to respect others to ensure a comfortable and safe environment to watch the match.
