The pressure is on to pick up points

17 August 2016

Rovers boss Owen Coyle has called on the players to stand up and be counted and get a positive result against Cardiff City this evening.

After two defeats in their opening two Sky Bet Championship encounters, Rovers head to Wales looking for their first points of the season with Coyle not happy with the position the team finds itself.

The manager admits there is already pressure on the side after the opening fortnight, but that it can be relieved by claiming the points this Wednesday night.

"Every time you've lost a game you look for people to stand up to be counted and show that they want to be a part of the club moving forward," Coyle told Rovers PlayerHD.

"The onus now when they step onto the field at Cardiff is to show that they are ready to go and try to win a game.

"The nature of the game that we are in is when you lose there is always that pressure, that goes without saying. We have all been in the game long enough to understand and to have the experience to deal with that.

"It's not nice, but it is where we are and we have to pick ourselves up quickly and look to address that, and the best way to address that is by winning games.

"In the Championship when you play two games in week is that it can change very quickly, so the opportunity gives you the chance to win games."

Fans who haven't yet got their tickets for tonight's match can buy on the night at the Cardiff City Stadium, from the away ticket office at Gate 12.

However supporters should note that there is a £2 price increase for sales on the day, meaning matchday prices are £24 Adults, £20 Seniors, £15 16-21yrs and £12 for Juniors aged 15 and under.

Supporters using the club's official away travel should note that Blues Bar will be open from 10am serving food and drinks.
