Confident after Fulham win

Shane Duffy has called on his Rovers team-mates to back up Tuesday's impressive win over Fulham by claiming a Premier League scalp this weekend.

The Republic of Ireland international hopes the way they performed in the 3-0 victory can act as a catalyst for an improved showing for the remainder of the season.

"All round it was a good performance, and it was needed," the defender told Radio Rovers.

"We made them look like an ordinary team, and we shouldn't be down there but we are. So hopefully it can kick-start a strong end of the season.

"But it can't be for just one game, we have to start doing it every week, so hopefully in the next few games we can get a few wins."

West Ham are next up at Ewood Park for this Sunday's Emirates FA Cup 5th round tie, and Duffy believes that the Rovers can go an enjoy themselves against their top-flight opponents.

Last season saw Rovers defeat Swansea City and Stoke City at Ewood Park, before taking Liverpool to a quarter-final replay.

"We can go and enjoy it, we did it last year here," he added. "Hopefully we'll get a good crowd and they back us.

"They are a good team but this is the FA Cup, we've got a bit of confidence after the win over Fulham and we can go and take it out there to show West Ham how good we are."

Tickets for the match are on open sale to Rovers supporters at the fantastic price of £20 for Adults, £12 for Seniors aged 65 and over, £12 for 18-21 year-olds and just £5 for Juniors aged 17 and under.

So don't miss out! Come down and cheer on the Rovers!
