A chance to make amends

19 April 2016

Paul Lambert has challenged his players not to let the season end on a low as they prepare to take on Nottingham Forest this Tuesday night.

Rovers go into the match at the City Ground off the back of a disappointing run of results that have seen them win just one of their last seven outings.

With four games of the campaign remaining Lambert knows it is imperative that their form picks up with tonight's game the perfect opportunity to do so.

"We have four games left and we don't want the season to peter out," said the Rovers boss.

"You want to try and finish on a high and that is what we have to try and do.

"I know what it is like, I've been in that position before when you see the season ending, but you are duty bound to see the season through.

"It is good that we've got a game again on Tuesday and it gives us a chance to kick on again."

Rovers put in a below-par display at the weekend as they went down 2-0 at home to Huddersfield with the boss admitting that they let everyone down. And he knows that they have to make amends this evening.

He added: "We didn't do enough for ourselves, let alone our supporters. There was a good crowd in on Saturday and we never really imposed ourselves in the game which is disappointing.

"I didn't think there was much in the game, Huddersfield never turned us over, we just gifted them the win, two major errors cost us.

"Winning is all that matters, that is what people come for and that will never change.

"We have to go to Nottingham Forest on Tuesday and try and win the game."
