Three points are all that matters

Owen Coyle believes Rovers have got what it takes to get their first win of the season this Saturday afternoon.

The Blues are back in action at Ewood Park for the third time in seven days when Fulham are the visitors for the last match before the league breaks for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers.

The manager knows it won't be easy against a Fulham side that have started strongly this campaign, but he has every confidence that Rovers have the ability to claim all three points.

"We go into the home game against Fulham looking to get the three points that we should have got against Burton," said the manager.

"It took the club eight games to get that first league win last year and we certainly want to get it as early as we can and Saturday presents a great opportunity to do that and that is what we are focusing on.

"Fulham have started the season well so we want to be the ones that put a spanner in their works. There's no doubt they'll come to Ewood confident looking forward to the game as they should be off the back of two wins and two draws.

"But equally we know that if we are at our maximum and at our best then we can win and that is how we will approach it.

"It is about getting those three points and getting up and running."

Tickets for this afternoon's match are on open sale up until the 3pm kick-off priced from £18 for Adults, £12 Concessions and £7 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
