Keep the performances going

Grant Hanley knows that Rovers will have to show the same performance levels if they are to get anything from Saturday's trip to MK Dons.

The Ewood captain feels that Rovers have been playing well of late, but is cautious of the threat that the newly-promoted Dons pose.

Hanley expects the home side to have plenty of the ball, but knows it is up to Rovers to make the most of their opportunities.

"We got beat there in the cup a few years ago," said the defender. "It is a nice stadium and they're a good side.

"They're a football playing side, they'd probably say that the league table doesn't tell the true story, as, like us, they probably feel they should be higher.

"It will definitely be a tough test away from home, they are a side that keeps the ball so we've got to go down there, start well, try to get a foothold in the game, and impose our game.

"Against Ipswich it was the complete performance but we can't rest on that now, we've not cracked it yet, we need to keep working hard in training and the games come thick and fast so we've just got to concentrate on that performance level, the work-rate of the lads has been second to none.

"We've been playing well of late so we'll be focusing on putting on a performance and coming away with a result."

Supporters who haven't yet purchased tickets for Saturday's match against MK Dons will be able to do so on the day of the game.

Some 1100 tickets have so far been sold for the first league visit to stadiummk, with tickets going off sale at Ewood at 4pm this Friday.

After that supporters can buy on the day - cash only from the away ticket booth from 1.00pm.

Tickets are priced at £25 Adults, £17 Seniors (65 & over), and £7 for Under 18’s.
