Determined to put things right

31 January 2015

Midfielder Corry Evans insists there is a collective determination to get Rovers' Championship campaign back on track.

The Northern Ireland international revealed that words were spoken after Tuesday night's defeat to Derby and the players are eager to put things right against Fulham this afternoon.

“It was obviously disappointing to go away from home and get beat, but we’ll look to put it right on Saturday at Ewood and hopefully we can pick up the three points and get the ball rolling again in the league," said the 24-year-old.

“We all sat down and had a good chat. A few people said their bit and we all agreed and moved on. We’re all focused on putting it right on Saturday, getting our form back and get a little run going in the league, which we need.

“In team sport you need honesty and that’s what it was on Tuesday. We all spoke and said what we felt was wrong and we’re all determined to put it right.

“It’s fine margins. For the majority of the game against Derby, we had good shape and the two goals we conceded were quite sloppy. If we can rectify the small mistakes that we’re making, we know that we’ve got players in the squad who can put the ball in the back of the net, so we’ve just got to try and find a way of putting the two together and hoping it will click.

“We know that we’re not far off ourselves. It is frustrating that it is small things, but we’ll be working hard to try and fix them."

With four of Rovers' next six league games at Ewood Park, Evans believes it is an ideal opportunity to string together a run of positive results. 

“We know our form is very good," he added. "We’re confident playing there and if we can get the fans behind us, we can be a real force at Ewood.

“So it’s pleasing for us that four are at home and hopefully starting on Saturday against Fulham we can get a much-needed win in the league, which we haven’t had in a while.

“The league is the main priority and we want to achieve promotion. It’s the second part of the season now and we need to get back to the form that we were in towards the start. Hopefully if we finish like we did last season, then we can get back up towards that top six and achieve promotion at the end of it."
