Another big match for us

28 December 2015

Whilst disappointed that Rovers weren't able to lock horns with Middlesbrough on Boxing Day, boss Paul Lambert is looking forward to that big match atmosphere against Bolton this lunchtime.

Rovers were left frustrated when the Ewood encounter with high-flying Boro fell foul to the weather, but attentions were quickly switched to this Monday's clash at the Macron Stadium.

Despite the Trotters' lowly position, boss Lambert knows that today's local derby will be far from easy, but they'll approach the game in their usual manner.

"There'll be a big crowd, it's a local game which is good," said the Rovers boss.

"It's a game we've got to go and try and win. That is what's we'll try and do, which we'll always try and do, whether it's home or away.

"This will be a tough game. All the games in this division are really tough. But we're playing well. Only two teams have taken more points than us in the first six games since we've been here - and that's Middlesbrough and Derby County, so we'll go there and try and go on the front foot and try and win.

"If you're looking for any positives from the postponement then it is the fact that you do get the extra rest from it. But the disappointing thing for me is that it was a game we were all looking forward to do and there would have been a great crowd and atmosphere. It would have been two teams going for each other. But obviously the weather made it an impossibility."

Fans who haven't yet got their tickets for today's match can buy on the day at Bolton.
