Repeat performance required

3 November 2015

Gary Bowyer has called for more of the same from his side as they take on Birmingham City this Tuesday evening.

The Rovers impressed last time out in their 2-0 away win at Leeds United, and head to St. Andrews looking for a repeat of the performance and the outcome.

The manager knows that the Elland Road victory will count for very little if they can't follow it up with another positive result, and that is something they are eager to do tonight.

"Straight after the game on Thursday we were getting our minds on the Birmingham game," said Bowyer.

"It is about going out there and reproducing the performance levels that we've shown over the last month and a half, and concentrating on ourselves to taking the challenge to them.

"That is what we've got to try to do, we've got to try and back the Leeds result up with a win at Birmingham."

Bowyer was an interested observer at St. Andrews on Saturday as tonight's opponents lost 2-0 to Wolverhampton Wanderers, but despite that loss, the manager is anticipating a tough match from Gary Rowett's side.

"Myself and Terry McPhillips went down on Friday and watched the reserves perform ever so well at Molineux, and from there we went on to the Birmingham game.

"It was a typical derby and the first goal was always going to be important. Birmingham started the game ever so well and got caught with a slight mistake in the back four and it could've gone either way.

"Gary has done a fantastic job there and they've started this season on fire. For them to be in the top six is testimony to the job he's done."

Tickets for tonight's match at St. Andrew's are on open sale priced at £15 for Adults, £10 for Seniors 65 & over, £10 for Students with valid NUS ID, £10 for 13-18 year-olds and £5 for fans aged 12 and under.
