Gary Bowyer wants Rovers to recover from the weekend disappointment to record a third consecutive home win this evening when they take on Derby County.

There was an air of injustice as ten-man Rovers suffered on their travels at MK Dons on Saturday, with the manager demanding that the players put that behind them by claiming another victory at Ewood Park this Wednesday.

The manager has been pleased with the way the team have been performing recently, particularly in front of the Ewood faithful and hopes that continues.

"Obviously we've had to get over the disappointment of the defeat but everybody who was fit and able has trained well," said Bowyer.

"Even on Saturday for an hour it would have been very difficult to know who was down to ten men with the way went about it.

"So we've got to go out and bounce back from Saturday, but full of confidence from our home performances this season. We'll need to show that level against Derby.

"Our last three home games have been very pleasing because we've kept three clean sheets and in our last two we've won.

"We certainly provide a really tough challenge to the opposition when they come to Ewood and we've got to produce that again on Wednesday night.

"We know that Derby have got some talented players and a talented squad, but it is down to us to be organised, disciplined, and to go out and express ourselves."
