Home form can be key

10 January 2015

Boss Gary Bowyer hopes home comforts can see them to victory in the first Ewood clash of the new year.

Rovers lost just four league matches at Ewood Park in 2014 and go into this Sunday's 2pm match against Wolverhampton Wanderers in confident mood.

"We are looking forward to the game on Sunday," the manager told Rovers Player.

"Our home form has been terrific this season bar the two blips against Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday. So we are really confident going into this game.

"We've taken four points out of six in our last two home games, we were excellent against Charlton and then we showed different qualities against a strong Middlesbrough team.

"It is important for us now to keep that home form that we've got and how we are playing at home and do it right on Sunday."

Rovers will be looking to avenge the 3-1 loss when the two sides met at the end of August.

As has often been the case this season, the blue and whites performed well on the day but sloppy defending proved costly.

Bowyer added: "We went to Wolves and in the second half totally dominated the game and got caught on the counter, but the manner of the goals we conceded were soft on that day.

"We probably didn't make the goalkeeper work hard enough at Wolves for the dominance that we had with the ball - especially in the second half.

"That game is gone, we've learnt from it and hopefully we can put it right on Sunday."

Tickets for the match will be on sale up until the 2.00pm kick-off.

Prices are from £17 for Adults, from £11 for Seniors/Students and from £6 for Juniors under 17.
