Lowe - Our patience paid off

26 January 2015

Jason Lowe was delighted to see Rovers progress through to the fifth round of the FA Cup after the 3-1 win over Swansea City at Ewood Park on Saturday.

Lowe, who captained the side to victory over the Premier League outfit, felt that their disciplined display merited the win.

Reduced to ten men inside seven minutes, Swansea hit back through Gylfi Sigurdsson's stunning strike, but Rovers were back on level terms less than 90 seconds later courtesy of Chris Taylor's third FA Cup goal this year.

The second half saw Rovers camped in the Swans half for extended periods, eventually getting the goals their play deserved thanks to a 13th of the campaign from Rudy Gestede, and a first Ewood goal from Craig Conway.

Speaking to Radio Rovers after the game, Lowe said. "It is a great result. We wanted to put in a performance to go into the Derby game with some confidence and we got the result we wanted.

"From start to finish we knew we'd have to be disciplined because they've got good movement and good strength up front, they are clever players.

"We had the extra man so we had to be patient and move the ball. They sat off deep due to Kingy's pace, so we just had to keep moving it.

"Thankfully we got the equaliser and kept doing what we were doing.

"Rudy came on and nodded us in front, we took confidence from that and the third one came. I thought it was a good performance."

Next up for Rovers is a tricky trip to the east Midlands to take on high flying Derby County on Tuesday night.

Lowe knows that the match will be far from easy, but they can take the confidence from Saturday's cup win down to the iPro Stadium.

"They are flying high, they are doing really well," added Lowe.

"They are a very good team, they are well organised and they can certainly play. We saw that when we came here.

"So we'll need to be on our game when we go down there, but we'll be looking to win the game that is for sure."
